"Stobaugh's books have been re-edited and enhanced with DVDs since I wrote the review for Top Picks. Titles have actually been simplified to World Literature, American Literature, British Literature, Skills for Literary Analysis, and Skills for Rhetoric. All of this makes these courses even better than they were!"

There are many other options out there for writing mentorship and online courses. But they are often taught by teacher assistants and other non-professionals. However, I teach all my webinars: I present the lectures, I answer questions, and I evaluate all essays.


Online Classes & Grading include:

  1. Essay grading
  2. A live weekly webinar
  3. An archive copy of webinars
  4. Occasional subject specific free webinars
  5. A college reference
  6. The following are descriptions of my webinar options:


    Skills for Language Arts

    This course will teach you how to read well. Good readers read with a pen. One does not read unless one is marking up the text. Competent readers ask pertinent questions and predict as they read. For instance when they read The Yearling, they will predict the ending. This skill will enhance comprehension. Furthermore, good reader’s look for the author’s purpose, the intended audience, the development and support of the main idea, and the structure/coherence of the work. Finally, good readers read a lot. This course will teach you how to write well. Great writers are always great readers. Writing is never easy. It is very difficult to do well. It takes planning, courage, and energy. I know this to be true—Writing is my vocation. I am occasionally inspired when I write, and inspiration does make writing more pleasant, but it does not make it any easier to do. Writing is, and will always be, difficult for you to do well. This dialectic level course is the beginning point for most students.


    Skills for Literary Analysis

    This is a dialectic and logic level course that prepares students for later academic pursuits. This 34-week course presents diverse writings, from Shakespeare to Jack London, Lewis Carroll to Longfellow, and Sir Walter Scott to C.S. Lewis. Students are taught to analyze key elements of literature such as allegory, narrative, satire, plot, setting, and more. While Dr. Stobaugh scrutinizes all literature from a Christian worldview, his instruction also helps students develop their skills in public speaking, writing, and discernment to empower them to be more effective Christian apologists. In the steps of Augustine, Milton, and Lewis, students are invited to analyze the classics with a keen, discerning eye, and to identify positive and negative components of literary worldviews emergent among the classics. Suggested companion: Studies in World History, Vols. 1-3.


    Skills for Rhetoric

    This is a dialectic and logic level course that helps high school students develop the skills necessary to communicate more powerfully through writing and to articulate their thoughts clearly. Suggested companion: Studies in World History, Vols. 1-3.

    • Develop creative writing skills including descriptive writing, poetry, and short stories.
    • Cultivate the use of expository writing including research papers, analytical essays, problem-solution writing, and firsthand accounts.
    • Learn the art of public speaking, including persuasive speeches, informative speeches, debates, and more.
    • Rhetoric is the ancient skill of persuasive speech used by teachers, preachers, politicians, and others to influence, incite, and instruct. This course includes basic grammar and writing composition, and mastering this time-honored skill will set your students apart with distinguished written and oral abilities.

    This 34-week, critical-thinking course will take the student through the writing of numerous academic essays, several public speaking presentations, and an extensive research paper. Dr. Stobaugh weaves biblical concepts, readings, and applications throughout the curriculum to help equip students to stand firm in their faith and become the light of Christ in a deteriorating culture.


    American Literature

    This rhetoric level (content rich) course helps your students enjoy beloved classics while developing vocabulary, reading, and critical thinking skills!

    • Each literature book in the series is a one-year course
    • Each chapter has five lessons with daily concept-building exercises, warm-up questions, and guided readings
    • Easy-to-use with suggested reading schedules and daily calendar
    • Equips students to think critically about philosophy and trends in culture, and articulate their views through writing
    • A well-crafted presentation of whole-book or whole-work selections from the major genres of classic literature (prose, poetry, and drama), each course has 34 chapters representing 34 weeks of study, with an overview of narrative background material on the writers, their historical settings, and worldview.

    The rich content is infused with critical thinking skills, and an easy-to-use teacher’s guide outlines student objectives with each chapter, providing the answers to the assignments and weekly exercises. The final lesson of the week includes both the exam, covering insights on the week’s chapter, as well as essays developed through the course of that week’s study, chosen by the educator and student to personalize the coursework for the individual learner. Suggested companion is American History or, for the more ambitious student, AP US History or AP US Government and Politics.


    World Literature

    This rhetoric level (content rich) course puts some of the world’s literary treasures into historical, religious, and cultural context as students explore literature from ancient times to the modern period. Students will encounter translated works from across the globe, including Chinese, Russian, Indian, French, German, Persian, and Arabic literature, and discover fascinating literary movements like romanticism and realism. This curriculum uses a strong biblical worldview to teach students about literary masterpieces from around the world. Through their studies of world literature in this comprehensive curriculum, students will amply develop their critical thinking abilities, communication skills, and knowledge of literary classics. This course also stresses biblical application and equips students to think critically about philosophy and trends in culture. Through studying and writing about literature, students will greatly enhance their own personal communication skills. Suggested companion is World History or, for the more ambitious student, AP World History.


    British Literature

    This rhetoric level (content rich) course is critical for high SAT/ACT scores and is the bedrock for AP English Literature and Composition. From reformers and rogues to poets and playwrights, a study of British literature will take you through some of the most popular works ever written. This curriculum uses a strong biblical worldview to teach students about literary masterpieces from the British literary canon and their historical context. In this comprehensive examination of British literature, students’ critical thinking abilities, communication skills, and knowledge of literary classics are all amply developed. This course also stresses biblical application and equips students to think critically about philosophy and trends in culture. Through studying and writing about literature, students will greatly enhance their own personal communication skills. Suggested companion is British History or, for the more ambitious student, AP European History.


    AP US History

    The AP program in United States History is designed to provide students with the analytical skills and enduring understandings necessary to deal critically with the problems and materials in United States history. The program prepares students for intermediate and advanced college courses by making demands upon them equivalent to those made by full-year introductory college courses. Students should learn to assess historical materials—their relevance to a given interpretive problem, their reliability, and their importance—and to weigh the evidence and interpretations presented in historical scholarship. An AP United States History course should thus develop the skills necessary to arrive at conclusions on the basis of an informed judgment and to present reasons and evidence clearly and persuasively in an essay format. All AP courses are CollegeBoard audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

Both their writing and their reading should make students aware of the interactions among a writer's purposes, audience expectations, and subjects as well as the way generic conventions and the resources of language contribute to effectiveness in writing. This is a perfect SAT/ACT verbal (English) preparation course. All AP courses are CollegeBoard audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

    AP European History

    The study of European history since 1450 introduces students to cultural, economic, political, and social developments that played a fundamental role in shaping the world in which they live. Without this knowledge, we would lack the context for understanding the development of contemporary institutions, the role of continuity and change in present-day society and politics, and the evolution of current forms of artistic expression and intellectual discourse. In addition to providing a basic narrative of events and movements, the goals of the AP program in European History are to develop (a) an understanding of some of the principal themes in modern European History, (b) an ability to analyze historical evidence and historical interpretation, and (c) an ability to express historical understanding in writing. All AP courses are CollegeBoard audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

    AP World History

    The purpose of the AP World History course is to develop greater understanding of the evolution of global processes and contacts, in interaction with different types of human societies. This understanding is advanced through a combination of selective factual knowledge and appropriate analytical skills. The course highlights the nature of changes in international frameworks and their causes and consequences, as well as comparisons among major societies. The course emphasizes relevant factual knowledge deployed in conjunction with leading interpretive issues and types of historical evidence. The course builds on an understanding of cultural, institutional, and technological precedents that, along with geography, set the human stage. Periodization, explicitly discussed, forms an organizing principle for dealing with change and continuity throughout the course. Specific themes provide further organization to the course, along with the consistent attention to contacts among societies that form the core of world history as a field of study. College world history courses vary considerably in the approach used, the chronological framework chosen, the content covered, the themes selected, and the analytical skills emphasized. The material that follows describes the choices the AP World History Development Committee has made to create the course and exam. These choices themselves are compatible with a variety of college-level curricular approaches. All AP courses are CollegeBoard audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.
