Alpha Omega Publications Announces New Switched-On Electives

Rock Rapids, IA (December 3, 2009) - Alpha Omega Publications®, a leading provider of Christian curricula, resources, and educational services, is pleased to announce the release of three new electives, including Spanish II, Semester II for our Switched-On Online® curriculum and two Business Computer Information Systems (BCIS) courses for our computer-based Switched-On Schoolhouse® curriculum.

Spanish II, Semester II completes a year-long, second-year Spanish elective for high school students. Containing five instructional units and a cumulative test, this interactive and multimedia-enriched course is built upon basic skills and concepts taught in Spanish I and Spanish II, Semester I. Students enrolled in this advanced world language course not only explore the language, but they are also immersed into the culture and origins of the language. Engaging course materials support student learning, promote cultural competency, and encourage proficiency in speaking, listening, and writing.

BCIS I-A and BCIS I-B introduce students to important workplace skills and software applications used in today's business environments. Exploring technology in the areas of telecommunications, desktop publishing, presentations, computer networks, and computer operating systems, these one-semester companion courses help students become more effective communicators and productive employees.

The Switched-On® curriculum includes the five core subjects of Bible, history and geography, language arts, math, and science for grades 3-12, as well as a variety of electives. With these three new courses, Alpha Omega Publications renews its commitment to leading the way in providing Bible-centered, technology-based curriculum.

"We're dedicated to helping your Christian school provide a wide range of elective options," said Rohn Gibson, Vice President of Marketing. "We're excited to offer schools two new business courses and a fully-online world language course. Best of all, with Switched-On Online, we allow students anytime access to Christ-centered online content that schools and parents can trust."
