I find that I too will need to make modifications to our history curriculum for my 9th grade daughter. The last few days I was really bothered by this thought because I wanted her to do it all. I wanted her to go deep on each part because that is how *I* am, but this is *her* education and it should be tailored to her.
Last night, I realized that if I wanted her to continue to love learning, I would have to make sure she can learn with the method and program I am using. So like a good homeschool mom, I plan to sit down today and work to make changes to the curriculum so that it suits her best.
Your article only and the scripture verse confirm that I am doing the right/best thing. I am not alone.
So far I've had to modify every single thing I've bought in order to fit my students. Even the world history study I pieced together for one kid - I modified my thinking about how long it would take to get through it because she wanted to go deeper every single lesson. I think tinkering and tweaking curriculae goes with the territory, and that's where you have to trust God rather than the publisher.
