Anyone used Where the Brook and River Meet?

Recommended Posts

My daughter is using Where the Brook and River Meet from Cadron Creek as part of her grade 9 year starting in the fall.  I was wondering if anyone here has used it?


I'd love to hear your thoughts on the program.  Are there any of the suggested books that you loved or didn't like at all?  Did you find any great go along books?


I'm in planning mode!

DD/rising 11th used it in middle school. She loved it! 


The Annotated Anne and Anne's Anthology were absolute must haves. The Treasury was sweet and worth having. Writer's Inc was a good addition.


We dabbled in the history that interested us, skipped the Waring stuff in favor of what was already on our shelves, and had a full history course on the side. It would have taken a lot more fleshing out to make a high school history credit, if I recall correctly.


I'm pulling up the sample files because I completely forget all the extra books it had in the "contracts." We did most of the biographies. Skipped Schaeffer and the homemaking books in favor of discussion and internet searches (decorating, etc). I skipped the Uncle Eric government books and just covered the content I thought she needed through discussion with her, but I would have included them if she was a high schooler. We spent more time on Shakespeare than the guide scheduled.


If you haven't taught much in the way of poetry yet, Art of Poetry from Classical Academic Press is a nice compliment alongside Brook and River. (I only bought the TM and we did the course orally, sharing the book.) Anne is a walking fountain of poetry.


I'd love to do this course again with my next daughter around 8th grade ('17-'18). So far she's more interested in the Lord of the Rings guide though. LOL

Here is a link where I describe what we did when dd was in 7th.  http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/317513-x-post-beautiful-autumn-metaphorpersonification-example/?p=3739276  (This dd is a very strong student and for the most part, she was functioning like a high schooler in 7th grade.)

Hi - I was doing a search for this unit study by Cadron Creek and saw your link. It no longer works. I’d love to see what you used if you still have it written up 😊
