Suzybearybake Posted February 8, 2008 Share Posted February 8, 2008 I am trying to decide which one to use for 8th grade and which one for 9th. SP seems to have some simplier reading but it has at least 7 or 8 essays over the year. SP has some American history tie-ins which would be a good fit for our BJU American history lessons that year.David Quine's Starting Points is for grades 7-12 and I was hoping to use it as a Lit/ Bible course. I believe LLLOTR is for the same grade range. LLLOTR seems to be a workbook aproach that uses a lot of fill in the blanks and matching. My ds is a very reluntant writer so I do not want to overwhelm him so soon. We are using Apologia's Jump -in writing program in 7th and will do IEW SWI C in 8th to better prepare him for the writing portions.He will be 12 in 8th. Does anyone have experience with these programs ? Does LLLOTR have a strong writing component? I would greatly appreciate any suggestions from someone who knows the difficulty of the programs and how they compare. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
