CREW: Excellence in Literature


I have to admit, this is a tough review for us... but it's not because of the's my kids!  Well, not really my kids, but their age.  Excellence in Literature is a program that is geared toward 8th-12th grade. Since we are only 6th grade, this was a bit above their level.  We did attempt the first short story lessons and I do think it will be an awesome thing for us - in a couple of years!  I will be hanging on to it and we will revisit it when they are older.

I love the way the classics are used. I love that it is a student led program. I love that it breaks down the steps in writing & I love that it gets them, not just reading great books, but writing in that mindset. I also love that it has an honors part of the program, for those that are real go-getters when it comes to literature!

Introduction to Literature is available on Excellence in Literature's website in ebook for for $27.

  1. It's nice to have some things already decided for coming years, no? I am so glad to have this- it will come in handy for my ds when he hits high school (a few years still!). We are really liking the program with my dd (9th grader).
    Oh, and this doesn't take up much space ;)

  2. Blossom ~ it also encourages the good stuff... that you should already have on your shelf!!I am definitely going to use this when they get a bit older...
