And Part 3:
Institute for Excellence in Writing is a super, super writing program. The biggest downside is that is requires that the parent invest some time in watching the instructional DVDís (6 of them), but it is well worth the time. Weíve used our share of writing programs, and this one covers all ages, you donít have to have special textbooks, and I especially like the fact that the gentleman on the video understands why kids often donít like to write. This one scores as my favorite writing curriculum. It does not give you specific daily lesson plans. I like this fact because I have the kids write about whatever weíre studying in science, history, or literature. They do have an additional program available that gives daily lesson plans, called Student Writing Intensive or Theme Based Writing.

Calvert is the granddaddy of all home schooling curriculum. We used it for multiple kids for a couple of years and loved it, but it has been a while, so I canít really speak about it from experience any longer. Back then, it was excellent. Non-sectarian. Wonderful teacherís manual. It only goes to 8th grade, so it wouldnít be appropriate for your daughter. I wouldnít recommend it for an active boy, unless you took it in small bites.

Texas Tech and University of Texas also have correspondence high school programs that might be worth your consideration for your daughter.

Good luck out there!
