  1. I have been researching and staring at curriculum for months and I am losing my mind now that time is running out. We start school in less than two weeks and I am stuck between two curriculums in three subjects for my son who is starting 9th grade. Could you please give me your input on which you would choose and why? Thanks! Maybe one of your posts will give me the push I'm looking for. English: Illuminating Literature or Essentials in Literature (I think I like the "tone" of IL and the way it is written to the student, but the DVD's from EIL are a pull. IL uses a lot more novels FWIW) Science: Elements of Science Biology or Friendly Biology (Looking for something that will keep his interest and have doable labs...FB seems to be common items, while ES has virtual and hands-on labs) World Geography: North Star Geography or Around the World in 180 Days (Strongly leaning towards NSG, as ATW looks like it may be dry for him, but I already have the teachers manual from a friend for ATW so I keep looking at it and pondering) THANK YOU in advance for any direction you offer.
  2. We are starting FLL 4 this year and I was so excitedly looking for ALL and just came across this thread. I hope there will one day be a release date, although it would probably be later than we would need it, but it would be shame not to see it released at some point. As New Bee said above, I too have only been able to find the 5 week sample. Is the 15-week one still availble? Thanks!
  3. That's exactly my concern...but it would be nice if it was a good app. Whoever designed the app info page has no idea what makes for a good description, that's for sure!
  4. The only review I saw was someone complaining that you could only use it for one child. I did notice it said something about sending emailed reports, or something to that effect. Wish someone had it so I'd know the deal, LOL. I'm actually tempted to order it just to see...but $13 isn't a cheap app, if it turns out to be a waste. Do you guys prefer doing the DVD? I think it would be nice to have that time done independently, but I'm not sure if ds would like watching the DVD.
  5. Has anyone used this? The description isn't clear and there are no real photos, so I am trying to figure out if this $13 app is in leiu of buying the books. Any idea? Thanks!
