    I am looking for reasonably priced used copies of Teaching Textbooks CDs and Books in very good or like new condition. Please email me at I need Algebra 1 ASAP! Jennifer


  4. Thank you. I'm still trying to figure out if I want to go just Homer or Aesop/Homer for Older Beginners.
  5. I know there are other curriculum to choose from but funds are limited so I have to try something already on my shelves: * IEW Medieval HBWL - he seemed to grasp the concept of dress-ups, sentence openers, and keyword outlines but could never put them into practice. Even when I didn't require these items he could not put coherent paragraphs together. We got to Lesson 4 or 5. * WWS - This is a little easier than IEW but he cannot distinguish between important and unimportant information when summarizing, narrating, and outlining. He includes everything, he is so into the story he wants to share it all, lol. When I ask him to give me three sentences he gives me run-on sentences to fit everything in. He also has a little problem with putting the sentences in chronological order. We are on Week 5. * I have Writing Strands 5, 6, & 7 but have not tried them with him because it drove me crazy. Maybe I should look it over again, as I recall it had a very creative bent to it and I think that is why I could not figure out how to use it. * I have the book Powerful Paragraphs and the lesson plans from IEW to go with it. I think this will be very useful in helping him learn how to structure his paragraphs. Ok, I have looked over the Homer Core and really love what I see: * Day 1 will help him with reading fluency and comprehension, narration, summarizing, outlining, literary analysis, and vocabulary. * Day 2 will help with dictation, phonics, spelling, vocabulary, and grammar. * Day 3 will help with diagramming. * Day 4 will help with types of paragraphs, summarizing, and precis. So it looks like I can sell a lot the Writing curriculum I have on hand!
  6. I was wondering if my nephew would be able to handle CW, especially since he seems so lost with WWS. I suspect he has ADHD and has such a hard time staying focused and following directions. You have sold me, however, when you stated that CW provides a lot more hand holding. That is exactly what I am looking for. Now I just need to figure out where to place him. He is currently in 7th grade and I am working with him on spelling (AAS), grammar (Winston), and reading fluency and reading comprehension (with me because he reads at about a 5th grade level). He loves to write, especially creatively but he does not use punctuation, does not know when to start or stop a paragraph, and does not always have proper sentences. All advice welcome!
  7. Please give an update with your review of CW Herodotus when you can. I have chosen to use CW for my 10th grader but still on the fence regarding my 7th grader. He seems to do better focusing on one or two things at a time so that he doesn't become overwhelmed. WWS focusing on outlining and narration is great and providing him with a challenge right now.
