So I've planned out Austin curriculum for next year (8th grade) & I really feel pretty good about most of it except Language Arts. I'm torn over Language Arts.
Christian Worldview program I learned about through Focus on the Family
Math U See
BJU, Earth & Space Science
I REALLY REALLY like the looks of
CLP, The Exciting World of Creative Writing
b/c it looks like it is geared toward someone who wants to be a writer and right now that is what Austin is saying, that he wants to be a writer when he grows up so I thought this would be PERFECT for him. So that will take care of the creative writing requirement. However, I still have to have a grammar & literature, if I'm not mistaken. So for grammar I (along with the other local HSing mom who is helping me) thought Easy Grammar & then for Literature, Austin can check books out of the Library & write reports on them. Now the problem is that I have been looking at LLATL (he'd be in the gray book) & fell in love so now I'm torn (BTW, Austin is an avid reader). LLATL appears to have creative writing incorporated into the program (or at least that's what I read) so doing both LLATL & CLP, Creative Writing might be redundant so what do you think? Do both? Do CLP & Easy Grammar? Do LLATL & forget CLP? I'm really mostly hung up on CLP b/c it looks like it is geared toward someone who is interested in writing. Ugggghhhh, it's so hard to decide!
