Silverdale Press

This company publishes a few unit studies on topics related to American government and writing, designed for use by jr. high and high school level students. They have a Charlotte Mason/Classical feel to them and appear to be well written and thorough. There is also a blog with other ideas for lessons and activities. 

Novel Guides

This site has free guides to a huge collection of novels. Guides include a short summary of the novel, plus summaries of chapters, character profiles, metaphor and theme analyses, and author biographies. If you register for a free account you can also access discussion forums. (Warning: there are some very persistent video ads on this site! Nothing inappropriate, but definitely annoying!)

Wieser Educational

This company carries textbooks, workbooks and ebooks in all major subjects. They are advertised as "resources for struggling learners" so many of the books are high interest/low reading level. There are some useful life skills resources as well. Prices are pretty reasonable.

Chatterbug

Online language program that combines computer lessons and live tutor sessions. The lessons and tutor sessions are tailored to each student so they get efficient practice and progress quickly. The price is higher than strictly online programs, but considering the cost of individual tutoring, still pretty reasonable.

Generation Genius

A library of science videos (similar in style to Bill Nye) aligned to Next Generation Science Standards. Each video has discussion questions, lesson plan, teacher guide, and instructions for experiments. Subscription price is pretty reasonable.
