I seen a post that suggested Complete Curriculum and i was wondering if any one uses it.  Is it worth the price and time? What do the teacher editions have in them and include? I can see samples of the student books but it doesnt show any samples of the teacher editions. Im trying to find a curriculum that has the teacher and student books but dont cost an arm and leg.

IME the "complete curriculums" are far more supplemental than they are "complete", if you are talking about the ones sold at Barnes and Noble stores, Wal-Marts, etc.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

I agree w/ the pp, the ones sold at those stores are in no way complete.

I use the complete preschool curriculum for my 3.5 year old but it could never stand alone...young kids needs hands on activities and they need to be actively engaged.  I am only using it for preschool. Kindergarten will be an actual curriculum.

I have used this (if this is what you mean). I used it over the summer with my kids while doing the Logic Of English. It is a really decent workbook, however, I would not use it as an actual h.s. curriculum. The link that I gave goes to Amazon and it has a TON of reviews for this item.

 I have not used it. I looked at some of the samples though, and it seems to be very bottom lined common core for math and LA. Science, I was actually surprised that it had activities to go with each of the lessons, and the activities themselves seemed decent, but the readings almost seemed dumbed down (I looked at the 5th grade level so I can't speak for all of them, and I was comparing what my science minded kids have been doing so I could be way off the mark too). I didn't look at the social studies at all, but it definitely reflected what is taught and when its taught in public schools. The math was interesting to say the least that it had two 10th grade levels, Alg II and Geometry, but  they're 11th and 12 grade aren't published yet, so its hard to see if they're going to have Trig, or Pre Calc at all. I've heard bad stories about CC not prepping for Calc at all lately...

Me personally, I'd probably stay clear of it, but its because I can't really see its end results, and it doesn't even give a general view of the end results. I'm also reading a lot of "presentation at a glance", and "it allows to teachers to supplement, streamline, or customize each lesson". The customize part is nice in theory, but from what I saw, it'd be better used for supplement, and the streamline part for me translates to, skirt by at bare minimum... It has its pros and cons, but after looking at so many other types of curriculia, I've seen better :/ .
