Teens are ready for plot twists, adventure, moral quandaries, history, and a wide variety of literary genres. Enter the Boomerang!

Our year-long program is delivered in nine month-long lesson plans, released monthly.

Each handbook is based on a novel and immerses your teen in the world of:

  • literary analysis
  • historical context
  • grammar
  • punctuation
  • and book club parties

Each handbook contains:

  • Detailed notes to establish the context of the novel of the month (book not included)

  • Four passages taken from the novel for copywork and dictation, one per week

  • Easy-to-follow instructions to teach writing elements found in the passages

  • Examination of grammar and punctuation

  • Additional notes that go beyond the passage

  • Nine "think piece" questions—for discussion and writing

  • Book club party ideas

  • Copywork passages on separate printable pages

  • Four-color design that looks gorgeous on tablets or printed at home

The Boomerang program includes Guidelines for implementing copywork and dictation practices, a planning tool, and a writing skills tracker to help you stay informed about your teen's progress.

Start any time. Enjoy the published Boomerangs in any order. You will receive all nine by April 2025.
