Honestly, I feel Level 8 is more practical! I saw the Levels 9 & 10 books once, and they went into some great detail and had things in them that didn't seem like we needed, so we didn't go past Level 8.
My 8th grade daughter is finishing R&S 7th grade english. SHe is a very good writer and generally very good in grammar. I had her do 7th grade english again this year more because of some family disruptions last year. My question is: should I put her in 8th grade En. or skip to 9th grd Eng for next year? Is there a big difference between the two? Is there enough review in the 9th grade of the 8th grade presented material. She has always scored in the high 90's percentile in standardized testing and she will be doing alot of writing in other subjects next year. Just wondering should I just proceed to book 8 and do 9th and 10th in 10th and 11th grade?
That's just MHO though, others may think otherwise.
