This is just me. I have two going into the 10th grade.

For 10th we are going to use

Jensen Grammar
Jenson Vocab
Jensen Punctuation
Jensen Format Writing

The author of the books was kind enough to devise a 3 year schedule for me so we can do all 4 books in 3 years in a rotating fashion.

We will also be doing ABeka World Literature. We used their 9th grade Lit book and I really like it.

Is the Jensen's schedule something that you could email, or is it really long? I have two of the books and was debating how to do them.

Hi Linda,

I voted for Put That in Writing because we love it for writing; but it doesn't include literature which I think is "necessary" for a complete language arts.

My dd's doing PTIW I in 8th grade. I'm considering Smarrs for literature for her freshman year; but we might just continue doing PTIW, too.

I had sent a schedule of my own to Frode to see if he thought it would work. He didn't like my schedule at all saying it would break up the repetition necessary for them to remember key concepts so he proposed a schedule for a 3 year program that he thought would work. Here is what he said,

"How would I do it? Vocabulary and punctuation every day for the first semester. Grammar and vocabulary every day the second semester. That's the sophomore year. It will also be the most intensive year.

2nd year: vocabulary each day for the first semester along with the section on writing paragraphs. That finishes the vocabulary book. Move on to the 5 paragraph essays, the practical applications, and the business writing section; also do the review punctuation lessons from the general punctuation section. So ends the junior year.

3rd year: do the principle of condensation, and work on major papers. Perhaps there might be some time for some grammar review if it is needed. You could also do some literature."

We have a ton of literature through SL, so I'm not too concerned about that. Smile

"Fire Begets Fire" ... There is a favorite saying by William Butler Yeats that goes, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." Imagine the fire we can light if we first start with prayer!
