Welcome!
 

We have another website www.used-textbooks-online.com where you can order used textbooks, Teacher Editions and Teacher Resources online if you do not need personal assistance.  However, if you have questions regarding our products or need help with curriculum development, The Back Pack staff will provide one-on-one service that ensures you get exactly what you need … the first time.  We feel that communication is the key to a good working relationship and we take personal service very seriously! Call us at 252 244 0728.


Student Text and Teacher Edition – Matched Sets!

We are working on a “Used Textbook Promo” page for this website that will offer matched sets that contain both the student text as well as the Teacher Edition that matches it.  This will make developing a complete Homeschool Curriculum package very easy for you. Because this is a “Promo” page the prices on these matched sets will be less than if you purchased the books individually from our site.

As you know, it’s nearly impossible to match sets on your own when buying through various sites on the internet.  You don’t know for sure if what you are buying is a correct match because in many cases either you can’t see the actual book cover or you don’t have easy access to the publisher's catalogs to verify the ISBN numbers.  Allow me to do the work for you!  Not only do I have access to publisher's catalogs and ISBN numbers, I also have the actual student textbook and teacher edition in front of me for comparison.  I guarantee they match!

Posting these matched sets will be an ongoing process. Feel free to call me if there is a student text and teacher edition matched set you need.

If there are specific grades or subjects you are interested in seeing posted, e-mail or call us and we will make it happen!

K-12 Curriculum

You may have already seen on this site that we stock curriculum for every grade from Kindergarten through Grade 12.  Our used textbook inventory includes all the core subjects from Phonics to Physics!  We also stock electives like Art, Music, Home Economics, Marine Science, Accounting, Automotive and Typing, just to name a few.

We can also customize a complete curriculum package for any grade from  K-12. Just give us a call. 888 268 5087
 



Secular Homeschool Curriculum

We refer to our Secular Homeschool Curriculum as textbooks from traditional publishers like Harcourt, McGraw Hill, Holt, Glencoe, Prentice Hall etc. These secular textbooks are not religion based and include the core subjects and standards required in public schools and non-religious private schools. When you are navigating this website you will notice that we do have religious curriculum from several publishers like Abeka and BJU. However the majority of our inventory is from these traditional/secular publishers.

When the Homeschool movement first began decades ago, most of the parents involved wanted non-secular or religious materials.  As the movement grew, the needs for other types of curriculum also grew. Unlike today, Secular Homeschool Curriculum was hard to find because most Homeschool curriculum providers did not stock non-religious materials. From the very beginning, The Back Pack has offered Secular Homeschool Curriculum, even before it was as popular as it is today. 




Private School Curriculum

Our services for Private Schools include:
1. Assistance with curriculum development
2.Title Recommendations

For new schools, we will need to know the approximate number of students in each grade as well as subjects you plan to teach.  It is a good idea for you to have an approximate school budget in mind so that we can recommend titles that will fit that budget.  For both new and established Private Schools, we offer deep discounts to help meet your budget, as well as freebies

We reduce your shipping costs when possible (determined by the weight of books purchased and distance to be shipped). Purchase orders are accepted. We look forward to your helping you! 252 244 0728 or 888 268 5087

Customized Homeschool Curriculum Packages

There are many homeschool programs available.  What makes ours unique is that we customize each complete curriculum package based on your child’s individual needs and your curriculum budget.  We utilize traditional textbooks (often referred to as secular home school textbooks) used in public and private schools.

When you call, I will evaluate your child’s reading and math levels.  If your child is advanced in a particular subject, we may bump them up a grade(s).  However, if a child is weak in certain areas, we help you determine why and then develop your homeschool program accordingly.  I have been involved in the textbook industry and curriculum development for 23+ years and have a knack for getting to the root of the problem very quickly.  I hand pick curriculum that will help you to help your child fill in the gaps and move forward. 

I meticulously select items for your Customized Homeschool Curriculum Package based on my knowledge of publishers and textbook content.  We have hundreds of titles in stock so my selection is not limited for each subject.

You will participate in the final selections of textbooks.  For example, when necessary, I will share with you the Table of Contents of the math book I have selected.  I may also read a few pages from the Reading or Literature book that I have chosen (especially in the lower grades) to make sure the reading level is exactly right for your child. Before we ship your books, I will describe each item for your approval.  Many parents, who call us year after year, do not want to approve our selections for their curriculum package. They say “I trust your judgment, just ship the books!”

If you are planning to place your child in a traditional school in the future, I recommend that you teach the grade level core curriculum of that school.  This is particularly important in middle school and high school in the areas of Science and Social Studies – as different schools teach different topics in these two subject areas.  When you call, be prepared to share that information with me (Science and Social Studies) as it will speed up the process.

Email me if you have questions regarding a Customized Homeschool Curriculum Package or if you need help developing your homeschool program. jwc53@thebackpack.com

Adding New Products!

You will notice that some of the Teacher Editions and Teacher Resources are listed at this site, but not priced.  This is all changing. Over the past few months, we have added thousands of titles to both our websites. The Teacher Editions and Teacher Resources will be priced as we continue to add products.

Our goal is to get everything inventoried and posted with prices on both websites. This will be more convenient for those who wish to order online at the new website.  However, the product lists at The Back Pack site give you a good visual of what is available for a particular book.  In other words, I try to list matched sets of student texts and the Teacher Editions alongside the publisher’s resources that accompany them. This lets you see everything we have available for a given title, for example, tests, workbooks, transparencies, reproducibles, or CD ROMs.

If you have questions or comments email me at jwc53@thebackpack.com.
