Zane Education Review
As a home school Mom, I'm always looking for great online resources. There's always certain criteria that I look for when deciding to add a new site to our eclectic curriculum. Of course, price is always a factor. Then I look to see how many subjects are covered on the site and if it can be used for all grade levels since my children range in age from 16 to 6.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I discovered Zane Education. I was impressed with everything on the site but it was actually the Christian Learning Guide that completely sold me. It's a very in-depth timeline of Christian history geography. Although this tool alone is well worth the small investment, it's not all they offer.
Zane utilizes videos with sound and subtitles. This combination of learning is why Zane can reach many different types of learners. Special needs students, those with learning difficulties, those children with site impairments and the blind, as well as those students learning English as a second language can all benefit from this type of learning. The videos with subtitles approach also help children improve their reading skills.
Historical documents, World Fact Book and English/Language Arts pages are just a few of the other resources Zane offers. One of my personal favorite features is the quizzes that go with the videos. They are a great way to see how much of the information the children are retaining.
Zane is continually adding new resources and their site is very user-friendly and neatly organized. The founders of Zane care about the members and are very attentive to their needs and concerns.
I invite you to take a closer look at what Zane has to offer. I'm sure it would be a great addition to your home school curriculum.
