Meets the needs for my daughter's class. Thank you.
timely and great content
We are using this guide with my two homeschooled sons aged 11 and 12. So far we have only completed 1 unit. My boys work through it independently and I then check the answers using the answer key and using it almost as a leap pad for a 'Socratic ' discussion. I don' t necessarily have them write out the answers for each and every question/ activity. But it works well either way, having the student work independently or using it as a comprehension check gauge which is what I was really looking for when I found these- some sort of question- answer guide for some of the many books my kiddos devour and me left wondering - how much are they getting out of it? Well, I can see these guides serving that purpose , only wish they cost bit less...!
Great product. Makes the student think.
