Description

The classic three-act play, Our Town, by Thornton Wilder, is set in the fictional town of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, in the early 1900s. Our Town is an allegorical representation of life. First published and produced in 1938, this timeless story continues to be one of the most frequently performed plays with its universal themes of seizing the day, enjoying life while living it, and the importance of the little things in life. Whether playing the part of Emily Webb—the intelligent, engaging daughter of Charles and Myrtle Webb; George Gibbs—the upright son of Frank and Julia Gibbs, or even the stage manager—who acts as a narrator for the play, your child will see that each character reflects the hopes and dreams, the failures and successes, of any person, anywhere.


This beautiful edition of Our Town features an eye-opening Afterward written by Tappan Wilder that includes Thornton Wilder's unpublished notes, enlightening photographs, and documentary material. What's more, this paperback edition also includes an illuminating and insightful Forward by Donald Margulies that provides a new appreciation for this well-known play. Our Town is a required reading for the 11th grade LIFEPAC® English III course.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is LIFEPAC taught and how much work should we do every day?

It is student led and mastery based. All lesson instructions are in the student’s books. Teacher guides give additional ideas and cover the theme as well as provide answer keys. Each unit is intended for 18 days. Roughly that works out to 3 pages per day per subject. However, you can decide how long your school year will be and calculate how many pages per day that would amount to.

What is the difference between a 10-set and full-set?

A 10-set is a student workbook set without a teacher’s guide. A full set is the 10-set student workbook set with a teacher’s guide included.

How do I keep my records and who does the grading?

There is an area in the front of your teacher’s guide to place grades, but we also have student record books and cumulative files you can purchase for keeping records. Because LIFEPAC is a curriculum option, the parent oversees the students daily work, grading and record keeping. As the parent, you will need to make sure you are meeting your state board of education’s requirements.

Is LIFEPAC a complete curriculum?

Yes, it provides the five core subjects: Bible, History & Geography, Language Arts, Math, and Science. It also offers many electives for Middle School and High School students.

Are there other families I can connect with who use LIFEPAC?

Absolutely! There are multiple LIFEPAC Facebook groups available for you to join. Find the one that’s right for you and you’ll never feel alone in homeschooling.
