Lee, I agree with you about Cathy Duffy. Awesome! Somehow someone blessed me with her older book when we started home to learn. I read every page of it with pencil and highlighter at hand. The #1 thing to remind ourselves is that she is reviewing everything but doesn't know your child. She speaks of this and I understand fully!
A question for you Lee, 8-)...Have you ever had a parent report to you that they didn't have to change anything about their curriculum choices? We've had to try five different math series for one of our dear ones. Today I'm checking into another.

Love Cathy's book and appreciate your work, advice, and encouragement.

In her article 10 No-Fail Strategies for Choosing High School Curriculum Lee says that "As you are shop for curriculum, the learning styles of you and your children can help guide your choices."
