Biblioplan vs: Tapestry of Gracebp vs tog

Is Biblioplan and easier to use version of this concept? My youngest son would benefit more from an approach like MOH, and I see that BP uses this as well. My son is going into 7th grade, and neither of us want to work as hard as TOG! Any suggestions appreciated!

ETA: I just realized you were asking about scheduling. BP plans history for 3 days per week and the workload is easily do-able for those 3 days. Sometimes I spread it out over 4 or 5 days. It's more of a checklist-type plan than a big-picture plan like TOG so there is less pre-planning. The drawback is you don't have the teacher's notes to give yourself the background info on the topic. But with BP the assignments are shorter and it would be easy to skim your child's assigned reading. Also with BP I didn't care for the writing assignments so I just applied WTM techniques of outlining and summarizing.
