    Intro to Comp & Literature Study

    Hello All,

    After much thought and prayer, as well as through consultation with my son's educational advisor, I have decided that mostly SC 5-6 will be the better route for my son. ( I was considering mostly 7-8.) I am switching out Rod and Staff Spelling and math 3 for R&S spelling and math grade 4, science will still be covered at co op and history is covered elsewhere, too.

    As I have been planning the MP portion of my son's education, I have taken some things from 5-6 and some from 7-8. At first I felt that the literature titles from 7-8 would be more appealing to my almost 17 year old son, but then I noticed that the literature titles in 5-6 are tied to the titles covered in Intro to Comp. So, having never used Intro to Comp, I am not sure how important it is to use the 5-6 titles. Would you all recommend that I stick with the 5-6 literature titles, or does it not really matter?

    Thanks for your input,

    For full integration, yes, you will want to use the SC 5/6 literature. Your student will not write in the student guide for literature, but will for the Intro to Comp. You do essentially re-read a small portion of a chapter to complete the Intro to Comp, but it might be a lot to try and do the 7/8 literature and then read what might seem like random selections from the 5/6. The Moffats, however, is in Intro to Comp (it's an extra chapter at the back). If you weren't worried about a schedule, you could sub one of the 5/6 books for The Moffats?

      Thank you for your insight. I am trying to be so careful not to overload him, especially in the Language Arts, so it sounds like leaving the 5-6 literature alone is the better option. Thank you, also, for the suggestion to sub out The Moffats with another book. That's a great idea.

      Thanks for taking the time to respond. I really appreciate it.
