Mr. Q's Life ScienceClassic Science offers highly visual science courses with hands-on activities that were written for homeschoolers from a secular perspective.

Covering the origins of humanity, Ancient Near East, Ancient India & China, Greece, Rome, Islamic Civilization, African and Asian civilization, the Americas, Europe in the Middle Ages, the rise of Europe, the Early Modern and Modern World, students will discover the grand scope of history. The student text and journal are tied together by the Understanding by Design (UbD) model, which emphasizes "enduring understanding and transfer of learning" for long-term retention and applicability.

Essentials in Writing, Level 8 2nd edition:   EIW Level 8 is a homeschool writing curriculum that teaches middle school students ages 13 to 14 how to write meaningful sentences, proper grammar, and sentence mechanics as well as the writing process for narrative/descriptive/expository/persuasive writing.
