sandra in va Posted February 2, 2011 Share Posted February 2, 2011 (edited) We've been using TOG this year and my D level students, currently 7th and 9th grades, have done well with the history. They read the D level lit, but we're using LL LOTR for their main literature course (which we've been loving!). Next year my oldest will move into R level and to be honest, the TOG rhetoric lit scares me. I read through it and I immediately feel overwhelmed (esp. as my background is more math/sci). Next year my 8th grader will probably do a LL course to supplement the D lit. I've been researching other options for my rising 10th grader. Here are some of them: doing only TOG history and adding in another lit (like LL), signing her up the online LLC TOG lit rhetoric discussions, or trying to do it on my own using the TOG rhetoric lit guidelines for cutting back. It seems that if I've already purchased TOG, it would be best to use their rhetoric lit. It really does look amazing...it just scares me! I'm also concerned since I am teaching many other levels, with a toddler in tow. I don't want a big drain on my time (discussions are fine, but the prep work is a concern). Any suggestions or thoughts as I start planning out next year? Do any other TOG users out there do something else for lit? Thanks in advance!
