    We're using Winterpromise Royals and Revolutionaries for history. I think it's supposed to count as an English credit, too (Heather, is that correct? If not, you could easily make it so by adding on a couple of extra books.). I do know it has a Bible Study section for a "Bible" credit, but we aren't doing that.

    For English, I'm teaching a General Lit. class a coop (I was an English teacher), so that's what we're doing for that. My dd LOVES English and History, though, which is why it doesn't bother me to "add" extra onto Winterpromise -- this is HER area, and it's not too much for her. If this were not the case, I'd definitely just do some "add ons" with Winterpromise (i.e., they "suggest" you watch a couple of Shakespeare plays, I'd definitely DO that (we did that last year with history), etc. If you need more info, just ask, and I can give you ideas -- I do think it depends on your child. Like I said, mine LOVES history/English, so adding is nothing for her. If I had a non-Englishy child, I wouldn't add much because they have you reading Dickens and The Scarlet Pimpernil.)

    For grammar, she's using Bob Jones 10th grade grammar (I alternate years between Bob Jones and Abeka for grammar for middle and high school).

    We used Hewitt's Lightning Literature. We did British Lit, Early to Mid and Mid to Late. For American Literature, we used LLATL, gold book. We also use Easy Grammar. We also did One Year Adventure Novel. My dd did it her 9th grade year, then did it again her 10th grade year.

    We're using WinterPromise Royals to Revolution for our 9th and 11th graders this year. Paige- usually there is another english component for WP, but I'm not sure.

    We use Excellence in Literature, WinterPromise (various themed units), One Year Adventure Novel for English and History courses in high school. Along with a US History and the American Government/Econ credits.

    WP has seperate LA. After Level 6 it changes a bit in how it works, & basically your child sends their work to WP & they grade it. We haven't used that portion of their LA, all though we did use the other levels which could use some minor updates.

    We use Sonlight, MUS, IEW, & Apologia to hit all the main subject areas.

    I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
