A parent writes:
    "We used SOS with our son for grades 9-12 in all subjects and were thrilled with the results.  _________ is a very quick child who doesn't have a lot of tolerance for "busy work."  He found your curriculum to be very comprehensive and entertaining.  He tested very well on his ACT ... I am pleased to report that the curriculum was just the preparation he needed to face his freshman year at __________ University where he is a Computer Science Major.  He came home with a 4.0 GPA at Christmas and after spring semester he has a GPA of 4.0 for his entire freshman year!!  He really appreciated all he learned in Bible and History and said they were the perfect preparation for his classes in Bible and Humanities, classes which can be freshman wipeouts."

The latest version of Alpha Omega Publication’s CD- based Switched-On Schoolhouse is not just the latest version; it is a better version. Containing complete curriculum for grades 3-12, Switched-On Schoolhouse 2007 Edition is the perfect solution for today’s children growing up in the Information Age. It is dynamic, functional and organized, with new tools for teacher preparation and student success. New Windows-based navigation screens allow students and teachers to effortlessly move around the curriculum, and dynamic new home pages complete with Flash animation provide an inviting doorway into your student’s “learning odyssey.” 

SOS 2007 Edition provides an interactive learning experience, making your student’s education seem like an adventure. The clever animation and special effects spread a contagious energy that gets kids excited about learning.

The core curriculum for the Switched-On Schoolhouse builds upon the solid foundation of the LIFEPAC Curriculum that has been repeatedly proven in homes and schools for decades. All five core subjects are included - Bible, Language Arts, Math, History & Geography and Science with eleven additional electives. 

Surpassing its predecessor, Switched-On Schoolhouse provides an interactive, multimedia- learning environment. Having been thoroughly rewritten and adapted to the electronic medium, Switched-On Schoolhouse immerses your student in the subject through a dynamic mix of text and multimedia presentations. Questions and activities challenge your student’s grasp of the information. Quizzes and tests then prove his understanding.

What’s New in SOS 

Switched-On Schoolhouse® 2007 School Edition includes many new and exciting changes from previous applications.  The printable student journal feature and other useful printing options provide opportunities to study even when you're away from your computer. The flexible editing features are a plus for both you and your child and the new help button assists your child in working different types of question formats.

 

Automatic Lesson Plans
Organizing your lesson plans and setting due dates is easier than ever. Automatic lesson plans are based on your school calendar. Generate a year’s worth of lesson plans with the click of a button. The schoolwork is spread evenly over the year according to the number of questions. You can even change the lesson plans if you have to adjust your school calendar partway through the year. Due dates are automatically computed and posted for the student. What a great way to stay organized! Better yet, the teacher is automatically notified when a student falls behind.

Automatic Grading and Instant Feedback
Imagine being able to eliminate that large stack of grading that is sitting on your desk demanding your attention. Your students won’t have to wait to get their work returned. Instant grading saves you time and gives immediate feedback to the student. Grades are automatically computed and recorded as lessons are completed. For teacher graded paragraph answers and essay questions, answer keys provide suggested answers and marking guidelines. Grading has never been such a pleasure.

Full Multimedia 
Education comes alive through multimedia. Science experiments are first demonstrated by multimedia with full instructions for hands-on completion. In geometry, three-dimensional objects are illustrated with computer-generated video clips of these objects rotating in space. Video clips illustrating events in the Bible, literature and history are used to enhance and bring the curriculum to life. Sound captures of the vocabulary words allow students to hear how each word is pronounced, and spelling tests are given directly by the computer. DLAs challenge students to apply the information they’ve been studying. Students will enjoy the math “chalkboards,” Spelling Bee, Vocabulocity, Timeline, and more. New in 2007 Edition are selections of Flash animation at the student’s homepage. 

Book Reports
Designed to integrate reading, writing, and thinking, Language Arts book report projects for grades 3-8 feature genre highlights, annotated book lists, and links to additional resources. Thought provoking questions provide a structure in which students can reflect upon, evaluate, and write about the books they choose.

Custom Curriculum
This feature allows you to modify existing SOS subjects by combining, adding, or removing units and assignments. Or, you can choose to build your own curriculum from scratch using any of the available SOS materials. Teachers can build learning programs that address student learning gaps or offer remedial or review work. Now you are able to create a course tailored to the individual need of your student!

Work Mode
With flexible navigation, the new Work Mode in SOS 2007 Edition will allow students to view presentations, complete lesson problems in and out of sequence, and record notes and questions on the electronic notepad. Utilizing the status bar, students will be able to track their progress through quizzes and tests. 

Internal “e-mail” System
Communication is made easy with improved internal messaging. Switched-On Schoolhouse 2007 Edition messaging allows you to attach messages to each problem in the lesson and add instructions or comments for your students to view in their personal electronic mailboxes. Teachers are notified immediately of messages and now can access, sort, and print messages in one convenient place.

Student Resource Center
Important resources are now at your fingertips! A dictionary and calculator are integrated into Switched-On Schoolhouse 2007 Edition for student convenience. An interactive periodic table, with zoom feature and element highlights, makes chemistry fun and exciting. Each element is hyperlinked to its own page to provide more information.

Mastery Learning
Focused learning just got even better with 2007 Edition. Students may be given unlimited opportunities to achieve 100% mastery before they move to the next lesson. Incorrect answers will automatically spiral again. However, new in 2007 Edition is the ability to limit the number of attempts. The software will automatically calculate the chosen penalty for guessing attempts, thus encouraging the student to “dig deep” for important information and learn it well!

Tracking, Reporting and Printing
New flexible printing takes learning from the screen to the page. Students and teachers can easily print entire assignments, lessons, problems, and records. These options give the busy family greater flexibility and mobility or easier homework distribution for the Christian school.

LIFEPAC GOLD Click here for purchasing information or to order online
Flexible, complete, award winning…these are just some of the words used to describe Alpha Omega Publication’s LIFEPAC curriculum for students in grades K-12. LIFEPAC stands alone in its teacher-friendly layout and instructional flow.

Serving as the foundation of the entire Alpha Omega curriculum, LIFEPAC is a complete, 12-year Christian curriculum designed to teach five core subjects (Bible, Language Arts, Math, History & Geography, and Science), plus an array of secondary electives. Composed of consumable textbook/workbook combinations that conveniently combine subject text, exercises, projects, review, and tests, this worktext format is designed for active teachers and home school educators who want the advantage of extensive, pre-developed curricula with integrated lesson plans.

Mastery Learning
LIFEPAC's full-color, worktext curriculum is based on the principle of mastery learning, in which students truly master the context and skills of one unit before progressing to the next. Different students learn at different speeds, so mastery learning ensures success by allowing each student to move at his or her own speed. 

Critical Thinking Skills
Many specific LIFEPAC curriculum activities and questions require students to go beyond simple objective recall, asking them to instead, think analytically and draw conclusions that require a conceptual understanding of the material. More than just recalling facts, your student will grasp concepts through analytical and evaluative thinking skills.
