    I am impressed with Jill Dixon's curriculum. The curriculum is challenging, and easily adapted to suit various learners. As a busy homeschool mom and homeschool Co-Op teacher this curriculum also saves me a lot of time and research.

    I found this new curriculum this year while desperately looking for an American literature curriculum that used whole books, some anthology, plenty of history and wasn't biased. This program so far is wonderful and meeting and exceeding all of my expectations! It uses a college level anthology for reading, covers plenty of vocabulary and literary terms and so far the writing topics are great! It is not too teacher intensive either, with a teacher guide that is an exact copy of the student book but with answErs. This program states that it will prepare a student for the American Lit and/or Interpreting Literature CLEP tests----and I can see why. This is a very intense and advanced American Lit program! We will be continuing with Part 2 in 12th, which is supposed to be ready by then.
