Has anyone used Spectrum Writing or Core Skills for English?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone used these workbooks for your middle schooler? I am looking at the Spectrum Writing and Core Skills Language Arts. I am totally stumped as to what English to use and found these at Barnes and Noble.


They do look pretty good.


All the other curriculums I have used I don't like...such as LLATL, Lifepacs, Abeka, Write with the Best and Wordsmith series. I am at a complete loss as what to use.

I used Spectrum Writing for grade 4, Spectrum Reading for grade 5, and Spectrum Science for grade 7.


It is a very thorough, user-friendly program for such a low price. I would say it is worth the small investment to give it a try. You can always switch later in the year if you feel the need, without the guilt of having spent a bundle on something you end up not being happy with (as would be the case with most of the other programs you listed ;).


When in doubt, try the cheap curriculum first! And really, it is a decent curriculum.
