what to say?
September 29, 2011
We are in the third section/chapter of this curriculum. It consists of a workbook that has questions like a group discussion devotional, a book, and a CD of Sproul teaching his class. The CD is very dry and droning. What he is saying is very good, but the presentation is lacking.
The material content is EXCEPTIONAL/PHENOMENAL, Biblical, and very deep. The workbook is nice discussion-starter questions for myself and my daughter who is a senior homeschooler. She likes to talk deeply about the Bible and spiritual matters and she is a very studious person in all other subjects of school. However, this curriculum has quite a lot of what I would call "good words" (that means that my children have to look them up in the dictionary and write them in a vocab. notebook). My oldest and most studious child is taking it rather well, but I would say the average high schooler would not. This material, though easy to understand, needs vocabulary that is simplified for the average high schooler. Because the average high schooler can and needs to learn what this author has to say.
The curriculum could be considered concise. None of the books are very thick and it would be easy to get through the material, even looking up words in the dictionary, during a normal class period. In addition, it should be easy to fit this curriculum into one semester.
