  1. the LLLLOTR DOES include a lot of what you are talking about. its does not go in to depth, but it talks about his biography, how he developed the languages before he wrote the book, includes sections of beowulf . . . his relationships with other writers, etc. you might want to actually look a the teachers guide for LLLOTR before you do too much work - it might be easier to just bring in the various books when they are referenced in the guide. a lot of people skip the worksheets and go more in depth in the 'unit studies' in between - there are even references to various shakespear plays
  2. I try not to pay too much attention to what other ppl are doing (and only started hanging out here this month, as we enter our 4th year of homeschooling). I call myself relaxed (or very relaxed) eclectic. I give the kids curriuclum to cover what I think htey need to work on that year, and also what they want to work on that year. Anything else, imo, is busywork. and if i feel bad about how 'light' their work is, i go hang out with some radical unschoolers - that always makes me feel like we are very productive! but seriously, you need to figure out what you want for your children,
