Which one do you use (or prefer)? I've used some Progeny Press guides and am considering Total Language Plus also for next year. My dd will be in 8th grade and is a slower reader (painfully slow from my stand point!). Any help, much appreciated!

I have never used TLP, but I think the Progeny Press are fabulous!

I also find lots of free ones on the internet. They're pretty easy to find.

They are very different. TLP has more variety (reading comprehension, writing topics, activity ideas, spelling, vocabulary, grammar...) but I think PP has better questions (a deeper level of understanding.)

Just google them? I did find one by accident this way once and it was very strange! I think it was for college students. The themes weren't any I had encountered when I had read the book! Don't even remember which title.

Thanks for your input.

Oh. That makes it even harder to choose! TY!

I like your Walls of Books, Angela. Great classic choices.

We love PP guides. I love the comprehension questons which require thinking along with the vocab, literary terms and life application questions. However, if you are looking for a more complete program which includes grammar and such, I would choose TLP.

We really liked the PP guides also. I guess with not having the TLP in front of me, it was difficult for me to compare. I appreciate the explanation.

We've always had TLP, but now I'm intrigued by PP. Thanks for starting this thread.
