A Woman on a Mission

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

I love that Robin Finley agrees with the Charlotte Mason philosophy of waiting until the children are older to teach them grammar. I also love that Robin describes herself as follows: "I am a woman on a mission to convince parents that they don't need to be doing a grammar worksheet every day, all year long, for years and years and years! If grammar is taught sequentially and logically, there is no need for so much repetition."

Analytical Grammar

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

I like the way she teaches, however as for the content of the sentences from a Christians perspective a lot of it is inappropriate. For example:

1. Jack dared us to walk by the haunted house at midnight.
2. Jim wanted to tell us a ghost story especially designed for scaring people.
3. I fell madly in love with the artist who lives next door.

In the Appositive Phrases Test it's all about "Gone with the Wind" which might be considered a classic to others, but is not in our home and I wouldn't want my girls reading the book at all.

These might seem insignificant to some, but what your mind feeds on develops your spirit and these are contrary to the teachings in our home. Like I said these are just a few to give you an idea of what I was talking about. I am sure that more wholesome sentences could be have been used throughout the curriculum and still get the concepts across.
