5 Stars Out Of 5
great improvements from years ago
March 8, 2014
I have tried a few other curriculumns, one for 8 years, but this one is the most user friendly. No surprise tests, no excessive quizzing, which actually leads to forgetfulness in my opinion. The kids review and review for an appropriate amount of time before moving on to new things. I really like the improvements over the previous dry, very dry, format. When it comes to writing, there is no replacement for the teacher. They really need constructive feedback, which is lost when the parent lets the student do all the correcting. I do not agree that the students should correct their work, that is the teacher's job. Supervisors are supposed to check the boxes, every few pages, but I know that some pretty much leave it all up to the students. That is a mistake, and those are the students who grow up to insult this curriculumn.
