We have used Wordly Wise for several years now. LOVE IT! I know it bothers some that it isn't a Christian curriculum, but I feel my children have a great foundation in the TRUTH and are not going to be harmed by the few passages with a more worldly view.
I wish our public schools had used such a comprehensive vocabulary curriculum with us when I was in school! I look at the lists each week and have to learn a few words myself! My children are in high school and I truly feel this is a great resource to prepare them for college!
I would recommend this to homeschoolers and public school kids. Wonderful!
Our 11th grader has really benefitted from this curriculum. We knew from the outset that this was not a curriculum that had a Christian WorldView (nor did it claim to) so we were aware of what we may encounter. And, to be frank, there were only a few passages in the lessons that countered a Christian WorldView. So long as your student is solid in their Christian WorldView then there is not much to worry about. Just discuss those stories and lessons that present a secular viewpoint and you'll be fine. Our students should not be afraid to read and discuss and acknowledge a contrasting view; they just need to know what Biblical truth is and be solid in their Christian WorldView. I think it is actually healthy to read and discuss secular works as it helps us to study and be prepared to defend Biblical truth. We do, however, draw the line where rudeness and crudeness are presented and with things that violate Biblical standards of holiness and righteousness. If you are strong and solid in your Christian convictions you wont have a problem with this curriculum. This is a great book for vocabulary building with lots of reinforcements.
So it does have good vocabulary lessons. My daughter thinks its well done. However as Creation Christian, the amount of Evolution propaganda is disheartening. For one evolution claim it uses 'unequivocal' as the vocab word... well of course. There are no Christian lessons or sayings, it is all secular and would make an Atheist proud.
Our family has used ABeka Spelling and Vocabulary for many years and always enjoyed it, but I believe this is slightly better. The various exercises help to clearly define the "flavor" and proper usage of each word. My daughter finds the weekly "passage" to be interesting and informative. There are enough new (to me) words that I find myself using the book along with my daughter and we look forward to using the 12th grade curriculum next year.
