Timberdoodle's review
Switched On Schoolhouse 2013

Features in the 2013 version of Switched On Schoolhouse include:

  • Updated UI
    The User Interface has been tweaked and trimmed to reduce the number of keystrokes needed to perform some tasks, and simplified to make things a little cleaner, clearer, or easier for you!

  • Transcript
    Need to submit a transcript for your student? SOS provides a transcript you can also customize to enter any non-SOS courses you want on the student transcript.

  • Attendance for multiple students
    Looking for an easier way to track attendance for multiple students?
    The new attendance tracker lets you easily update multiple students attendance each week. This lets you count days when you had non-SOS school activities as school days for multiple students on one tracking screen instead of going into each student's calendar.

    Switched-On Schoolhouse Bible is a Christian homeschool curriculum for grades 3-12 with a developmental, in-depth study of the Old and New Testaments. Utilizing the King James Version and the New American Standard Bible, the Bible curriculum covers a variety of biblical material to assist in the development of practical Christian living. The Bible curriculum provides seven major themes: Theology, Attributes of God, Biblical literature, Biblical geography, Christian growth, Christian evidence, and a special emphasis for each grade level.

    SOS Bible Objectives

    Switched–On Schoolhouse is a comprehensive, Biblically-based CD-ROM curriculum where children grades 3-12 learn, study and do their schoolwork right on the computer. All the core subjects - Math, Language Arts, Science, History, Geography, and Bible - are included. SOS Provides an interactive learning environment with 3-D animation, video clips, and other multimedia. SOS also features automatic grading, record keeping, and lesson planning with the click of a mouse.

    ...a Little Like Bread
    A homeschool curriculum is a little like bread. There are those of us who grind our own wheat within minutes of kneading it (pun intended). Our eggs are still warm from the hen, our honey harvested from our own hives. We experiment with the ingredients, adding a handful of seeds for flavor, maybe a little cracked seven grain mix for texture. We even try making the flour extra coarse to save time grinding, but only once. Most of the time we make standard loaves, but sometimes we make mini-loaves, buns, even an occasional cinnamon roll. When the bread emerges from the oven, we cut our slices to suit our individual tastes, heels for those who like the sturdy crusts, thick slices for the famished, thinner slices for those counting calories. Often it takes longer to grind enough wheat for a loaf of bread than it does to eat the same loaf.

    Store-bought or Home-baked
    Then there are those who buy their bread from the store. It is customarily pre-sliced, often enriched, always convenient. There are some choices available, but never as wide a selection, and never as nutritious as what can be done at home. Still, when time is at a premium, a slice of store-bought bread with a spoonful of peanut butter will satisfy your hunger just as nicely as any home-ground, home-baked slice will. And isn't satisfying hunger the overall reason for bread anyway?

    The Best Sliced-bread Option on the Market
    In much the same way, we are grind-your-own educators. We prefer to have complete control over what our children are consuming. We are fussy about what they are feeding their minds and hearts. We are particular about what we are giving them a taste for. It often seems as if we spend more time researching materials than they do using them. However, many parents are just as committed to their children and would love to home educate, but feel that they cannot for many reasons: illness, singleness, children with special needs, or any number of upheavals that families of today must weather. For them, we are offering what we consider the best "sliced-bread" option on the market today.

    Cannot Imagine an Easier Way
    Switched-On Schoolhouse automatically guides the rate of student work, drills, and sets the level of achievement. You will also appreciate the built-in review and tutoring. Alpha Omega Publications seems to have it all covered with automatic grading and record-keeping. I cannot imagine an easier way to teach your child at home. This program will be a treasure for any parent who wants to home educate but feels inadequate for the task because of time, talent, or resources.
  • Approximately 130 lessons per subject
  • Students guided through lessons at their own pace
  • Most of the grading is automatic
