Help your students master writing skills and build their vocabularies for improved reading comprehension, increased academic achievement, and more learning enjoyment.
For students in Grades 3-12
Our Writing Practice Program (WPP) is a time-tested resource for helping students improve their writing from anywhere. With customizable, self-paced curricula, you can choose what types of writing prompts to assign to tailor courses to your student's unique strengths, needs, and interests.
"We've finally found what we're looking for with WPP! After just one week I see improvement in [my students'] writing and understanding of essay type, structure, and content. The rubrics are great baselines as to what makes a good essay, and the lessons and example essays are helpful tools for improvement. I am proud to see my kids working independently and successfully to reach their writing goals!"
For students in Grades 4-12
Students with increased academic vocabularies achieve greater reading comprehension, more enjoyment of reading, superior writing, and higher standardized test scores. Help your students improve their diction with this easy-to-use online program accessible anywhere, anytime.
"I have used Word Voyage for the past five years because the program explores words more deeply and thoroughly than any other vocabulary text or program I've seen. The customer service is unparalleled; you can expect almost immediate assistance! The company continually improves its offerings. My students are enjoying the new games!"
Track your student's learning over time to identify strengths, learning gaps, and opportunities for deeper engagement. CTP and Milestone Assessments can only be purchased through our homeschool partners; details below.
Tracking homeschoolers' academic growth is crucial to ensure that they are properly challenged and meeting learning goals. Our time-tested Comprehensives from ERB include both the CTP and Milestone Assessments to help you stay on top of your learners' progress securely wherever they live and learn.
We recommend using CTP and Milestones in tandem for the most accurate academic progress tracking. Test CTP in the Fall or Spring and use Milestones to check in with your students across the rest of the year. These assessments are only available to families through one of our homeschool partners (below).
With CTP and Milestones, flexibility comes baked in! You can choose the subtests that best match your needs and your student's learning goals. Administer any or all of the subtests—how you use our assessment tools is up to you!
CTP and Milestones can be administered across testing seasons so that you can choose when to evaluate your students. Some homeschoolers prefer to test at the start of the year to see where learners are at the outset; others prefer to test at the end of the year to check academic growth. The choice is yours!
Want to know how your students' academic growth compares to that of other, similar learners? With CTP and Milestones, you have a range of available norms against which you can compare your students' performance, including the highly competitive independent school norm.
