I am seeking ELA curriculum that is based in strong, classic literature for a 7th grader. Bonus if it has writing instruction, not just assignments. We are looking at Lightning Lit 7.
As posted by @blue plaid in an older comment, some have been disappointed with Lightning Lit 7 for various reasons & have swapped to a stronger curriculum. We are new to homeschooling but plan to continue as we have loved it! Due to coming from public school, there were some areas that needed more work, specifically in writing instruction & grammar. That being said, we need some helpful feedback on curriculum choices. (We did try CLE & it wasn't for us. We are currently doing Eaay Grammar 6, Daily Grams 6, Weiteshop E and Novel-Ties).
Can you please offer some guidance by comparing Lightning Lit to other curriculums? Strengths / Weaknesses? Preferences & why?
