Sandra4 Stars Out Of 5Didn't work for us but may be what you needAugust 6, 2014SandraQuality: 5Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4The concept of these books is excellent. Every single day begins with a story about a famous person who overcame obstacles to achieve great things- often things that helped others! Every single day! That's about 130 two page stories of people who overcame accidents, poverty, learning disabilities, abuse, neglect ...who all decided to work hard and make something of themselves. Beautifully inspiring. Unfortunately, as this was originally written for at-risk teens, the curriculum really is "basic." It did not work for us, as my son had used Abeka and Calvert and the grammar covered here had been covered previously. This curriculum is excellent for anyone who struggles, and needs a really step by step, positive, inspiring and aesthetically pleasing curriculum that will "git er done." We are going to keep the booklets to read the inspiring biographies, and then hopefully find a friend who needs them. Very well done for struggling learners.
Jennifer K.5 Stars Out Of 5April 25, 2009Jennifer K.I am so grateful to have found this curriculum! I tried Abeka with my oldest two children and found that they weren't learning the material. Instead they would memorize the formulas and try to get by. This led to a lot of anger and frustration when I would question them for oral review.When I first received this in the mail, I was very skeptical looking it over in person. I thought for sure it was too advanced for my kids. Much to my surprise, my children LOVE IT! They understand the material completely and are able to take the concepts out of the booklets and apply it to the world around them! What every homeschool mom dreams of!!!!
