Has anyone used ACE for grammar/writing?


Recommended Posts

The grammar is very solid, with alot of review, and alot of diagramming. The format of the workbooks are really easy to use, easy to understand with interesting content. I always enjoyed working in the PACE's as a kid. You only have to do 3-4 pages per day to complete the year, so the bites are not huge, you know? You may want to do a diagnostic test, though, to find out which PACE numbers they need, instead of just ordering the 12 for their grade level. Sometimes an area might be weak and kids need specific PACE numbers to fill in that review. The diagnostic test can be taken free online at the school of tomorrow's website.

In the high school years, the grammar PACE's include literature and writing, but not enough in my mind. They do study literature, but it is not classical in nature, and the writing assignments are mostly just shorter essays and some creative writing assignments. I plan to supplement a literature and a writing program in high school with my kids.
