    Texas has a strong NCFCA presence. I suggest seeing if there is a club near you and participating for a year. I will warn you that competition is a lot of fun and might be addicting.

    If I might add, I think many families get to Year 2 or 3 and have already read Pride and Prejudice. Over the years I've noticed that some percentage of those folks don't want to recover material a...

    Let me start with the how much does Tapestry give you. And I would say pretty much everything is there for you. For the older student your whole interaction with them is scripted out for you. You...

    This is an area where I think you must first consider "know thy self."

    Dana, I'm a print user and only need the new liscence to be able to open the out of print book files. I'm afraid all I remember from when I purchased is those would be provided ongoing.

    Yes it does have SAPs for both the new books and the older books. The only frustrating part is that Tapestry is now charging a $5 fee to find your "licence" if you change to a new computer. The plus...

    Tapestry will give you a more formal answer, but I want to say yes and no to your question.

    You need to be very careful not to misrepresent what your son has done to colleges. So if you do decide...

    My biggest piece of advice is to start small and work up. You know him and how he works, so don't get into "how long" for other students. Instead you decide both how long do you want him to spend on...

    First assess what she has done thus far. Has she finished anything at all? If so put that in your plus category.

    Next, she does need some lit to make up an English course this year, but as a...

    Yes! the teacher DVDs are very helpful.

    If you don't want to come up with longer discussions for the D level books, I'd suggest cobbling together a series of readings that uses both sets of books. So you might read Tom Sawyer in D and Huck...
