Teaching Textbooks
At Teaching Textbooks, we realize that one of the things that makes homeschooling so superior from an academic standpoint is that students are free to work with a customized curriculum at their own pace. This allows for truly individualized instruction.
However, most textbooks are designed for classroom use not individual study, which is why much of the needed instruction is left out. The assumption is that the teacher will fill in the details.
The idea behind TT was to create products that include everything that's in a normal textbook plus all of the instruction the student typically receives in class.
In fact, the TT program offers more instruction than most students get in a classroom setting, enabling homeschoolers to retain their freedom to work independently without giving up the instruction they need to succeed.
