Next year DD will be reading the literature that goes with Notgrass From Adam to Us. But I want to add more formal lit. Previously, she has done two MCT literature trilogies.
I do have MCT Time trilogy and Figuratively Speaking. Would that be enough? Lightning Lit won't work as she has read most of the books in their 7th and 8th grade sets. I like the looks of EIL (Essentials in Literature), and am considering it as well. Help, please? And thank you.

I don't know the other programs, but honestly I think plenty of books read (either in a program or across the curriculum) plus Figuratively Speaking is plenty for literature for middle school, so I'm sure it's enough.

What you have sounds fine. My current graduate and rising senior just read good books and discussed them for middle school. We dabbled in Figuratively Speaking in 7th and/or 8th. They thrived in Great Books lit in high school. :001_smile:

Thank you so much!

I thought it could be enough, but there seems to be such an emphasis on literary analysis nowadays, that I got worried.
