2008 Edition of Switched-On Schoolhouse Homeschool Curriculum is Packed with New Features and Benefits

ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa, May 23 /Christian Newswire/ --

Switched-On Schoolhouse® 2008 Homeschool Edition, for students in grades 3-12, is packed with new features and benefits. Instead of the usual one-dimensional textbook approach to learning, Switched-On Schoolhouse has a lively mix of lessons, assignments, practice sessions, and quizzes.

Using a rich array of multimedia components, this Christian homeschooling curriculum from Alpha Omega Publications® fully engages students. Movies, maps, timelines, learning games, and interactive projects serve to captivate students’ interest, and motivate them to learn subjects like Bible, history & geography, math, science, and language arts, as well as a variety of electives.

New to the 2008 edition of Switched-On Schoolhouse (SOS) is an improved automatic grading function with an expanded answer key, making grading less rigid and fairer to students. Also added is a new centralized help feature that puts the user manual, overview, tutorials, and important support links right at your fingertips.

The 2008 edition of Switched-On Schoolhouse also has an easier recordkeeping feature that simplifies the process of backing up student data. Additionally, a flexible and customizable grade reporting function gives homeschooling parents the ability to create reports for specific date ranges.

A fifth new feature for SOS 2008 is an interactive game called Quiz Bowl, which may be played by one or two students in grades 3-6. This game helps students practice what they learn in History and Geography, Language Arts, Math, and Science.

Switched-On Schoolhouse 2008 Homeschool Edition is available in an easy-to-use, CD-ROM format which can be set up on any PC with Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 2 (or higher), as well as all versions of Windows Vista.
