At the end of my 6th grade year, my mother faced a dilemma.  After trying a few popular writing programs, I still could produce little more than a disorganized summary of a short story.  Then, my mother discovered a new course, Dr. Stobaugh’s Skills for Literary Analysis.  At first, we were overwhelmed by the thought-provoking assignments.  However, by the end of the school-year, I could comfortably compose a literary analysis of a Shakespeare play or a Dickens novel.  I can confidently say that this is thanks to three factors of equal importance:  my mother’s persistent guidance, the course’s continually challenging assignments, and Dr. Stobaugh’s weekly critiques of my papers through the distance learning program.  I am forever grateful to Dr. Stobaugh for his vital role in teaching me how to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and deliver a cohesive written assignment.

Your student will develop a love for reading and writing by engaging classic literature through critical analysis and real life application. This curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of your student. It is not a "cookie-cutter" program in which the student works for the curriculum, instead the curriculum is designed to work for the student. Engaging literature through a biblical perspective is the core of For Such A Time As This. With the Language Arts program (updated in 2010), your students will grow intellectually and spiritually into well-educated Christians equipped with exceptional reading, writing, and oral skills to communicate God's truth in all settings. Dr. Stobaugh, a homeschool father and trained educator, has created this top-of-the-line, 34-week program that guides students through a whole-book essay-based curriculum. As your students progress from 7th through 12th grade, they develop essential foundational writing skills (Dialectic Stage) and progress to advanced literary analysis skills (Rhetoric Stage), all based on the Christian theistic worldview.

Academically Rigorous: This whole-book, essay-based curriculum is challenging and stimulating for students, while amazingly easy to teach. Dr. Stobaugh challenges students to thoroughly explore, to examine closely, and to analyze critically classic literature while leading them to acquire strong writing and speaking skills. The program includes a well-balanced combination of daily practice and longer-term essay projects. New Concept Builders are scaffolds to guide students through various activities that highlight the most important concepts. This program is designed to keep students engaged. The academic rigor of this program enables students to reach new levels of advanced writing, speaking, and critical thinking.

Authentically Christian: For Such a Time as This curriculum assists young Christians in being light in a dark world, productive Christians in a post-Christian world. It enables them to become well-educated, skilled apologists in the home, academic arena, and workforce. Dr. Stobaugh advocates the Christian worldview by weaving scriptural concepts, readings, and applications throughout the curriculum. Students learn to distinguish truth from false worldviews within literature, history, and today's culture. Using the inspired Word of God as the platform for evaluating classic literature, For Such a Time as This equips students to stand firm in Christ while living in a society that is increasingly failing to recognize truth.

An Exceptional Value: For Such a Time as This resources offer this high-quality material at an affordable price to support and to enrich the family learning experience. Furthermore, For Such A Time As This is dedicated to distributing only materials that are academically and biblically sound and trustworthy.
