You know, TOG is one of the few programs I haven't tried. But we've been using MFW for many years and will be starting their high school program in a few weeks.

My guess is that TOG requires a lot more planning, and MFW allows you to spend more time teaching or learning. I did the planning thing with my older dd and am looking forward to having things already planned for my youngest. That's not to say that we won't tweak and adjust and fit in outside activities etc etc. But then when life gets crazy at our house, we can just open the manual and begin.

In the younger years, even activities are planned out with appropriate time set aside, after being piloted with many families giving feedback on whether activities were do-able and how long they took. In high school, it looks like there are some "projects" like doing something with Psalms, with several examples given.

And finally, I *love* that the first year of high school includes the Bible as a major piece of literature -- the whole Old Testament. And 2nd year it's New Testament.

Okay this won't let me link to a page where comparisons are given by some folks who have used both may have posted, but there is such a page in the MFW archives for those new to MFW.
