Textbooks & Other Products

Resources developed by in-house experts.

Unlike other online learning companies, K¹² has made an unusual commitment to develop a number of learning resources in-house, with our own staff of subject matter experts. We did this for one basic reason: What existed did not fully measure up to our standards.

We make available to you some of our individual, award-winning textbooks and our unique reading kit for early learners known as K¹² PhonicsWorks™. You may purchase any of these at our online store.

History Texts

K¹²'s The Human Odyssey series puts the story back in history with a gripping narrative of adventure, struggle, and triumph, helping us understand where we have been, where we are now, and where we might be headed.

The Human Odyssey Volume 1: Prehistory Through the Middle Ages
Edited by Mary Beth Klee, John Cribb, and John Holdren
Herndon, Virginia: K12 Inc., 2004; 664 pages
ISBN: 1931728534

The first volume begins the odyssey by exploring the development of civilization across a twelve-thousand year span, from the Ice Age to the Middle Ages, from cave paintings to stained glass windows, from crude huts to Gothic cathedrals. Beautifully illustrated with images, diagrams, maps, and charts in full color. Full glossary, pronunciation guide, and index. (7th Grade)

The Human Odyssey Volume 2: Our Modern World, 1400 to 1914
Edited by Mary Beth Klee, John Cribb, and John Holdren
Herndon, Virginia: K12 Inc., 2005; 736 pages
ISBN: 1931728569

The odyssey continues in 1400 with the rediscovery of classical Greece and Rome during the Renaissance, and moves through major developments in Islamic and Asian cultures into the great Age of Exploration. The final half of the volume surveys the democratic and industrial revolutions that would see the birth of new nations and new ways of life, leading to the brink of World War I. Full-color images, diagrams, maps, and charts throughout. An appendix of geographic terms and concepts augments an atlas, glossary, pronunciation guide, and index. (8th Grade)

The Human Odyssey Volume 3: From Modern Times to Our Contemporary Era
Edited by Mary Beth Klee, John Cribb, and John Holdren
Herndon, Virginia: K12 Inc., 2007; 432 pages
ISBN: 1601530188

The complex 19th century political landscapes of Asia and Europe set the stage for the dramatic third episode in the odyssey, in which the Great War and the Russian Revolution give way to churning century of even greater war, uncertainty, and economic turmoil. Science heats up as the Cold War freezes international relations; and major new political hot spots develop even as humanity reaches out into space. The digital information revolution changes the very way we conceive the human odyssey at the gateway to the 21st century. Full-color images, diagrams, maps, and charts throughout. An appendix of geographic terms and concepts, atlas, glossary, pronunciation guide, and index are included. (High School)

K¹² PhonicsWorks™

The K¹² PhonicsWorks program gives you the tools you need to prepare your child to become an independent reader—the first step towards an education for a lifetime.

K¹² PhonicsWorks is based on the best current research and years of firsthand experience. It is designed to help children:

  • Recognize the relationship between sounds and letters

  • Blend sounds represented by letters into words

  • Read and spell longer, unfamiliar words by breaking them into syllables

  • Read “sight words” (frequently used words such as "said" or "was," some of which do not follow the spelling patterns that have been taught).

The complete K¹² PhonicsWorks kit includes:

  • PhonicsWorks training video

  • PhonicsWorks tile kit – letter tiles, color tiles, magnetic whiteboards

  • PhonicsWorks Readers – "decodable" books of letter-sound patterns and sight words

  • Teacher Guide – daily lesson plans and assessment answer keys

  • Student Pages – practice pages, games, and assessments

We invite you to find out more about this revolutionary reading readiness program as well as purchase it at our online store.
