I used PAC English for my daughter in her 10th grade
year and we both loved it. She learned more than in
public school about grammar and as a bonus, each
vignette integrates a little history. The stories
are engaging and often teach a moral much like the
stories in aesops fables do. There are life quotes
at the end of each lesson too that my daughter was
able to remember and appreciate. We found the
lessons to be long enough or short enough depending
how you look at it. It's not so lengthy that it
drives a kid and parent mad. Even with writing
assignments, my daughter never felt over worked. The
writing assignments allow your child to apply what
they've learned and as they progress the writing
goes a step up. There are grading rubrics for the
parent to make grading easy. I would say the pac
curriculum got right to the point while keeping it
interesting and avoiding having the child feel over
loaded. I love it and will use it for my other
children. My daughter turned out to be an impressive
writer (even I was a bit envious) and always got A's
for her writing when she went back to public school.
