Which Would You Choose?  

  1. 1. Which Would You Choose?

    • BJU English - grammer and writing with AAS added

I've done both, but voted for BJU. I don't think either is better than the other, it's just the way we learn that works for us.


CLE is more of a spiral. I wouldn't say incremental, but close to it. BJU does concepts by chapter, trading off writing for grammar and I like those breaks in between. It's a nice middle ground between spiral vs mastery. Plus if we do want to liven things up a bit, BJU has a lot of ideas in their TM.

Obviously, you could just use CLE and skip the spelling- which is something I had also considered. But:


B. BJU can take us all the way through. I'm

Concerned about the non-Sunrise editions of CLE.


HTH :)
