Category Description for Life of Fred Language Arts:

There's a bit of a disconnect as you first look through these books, expecting high school language arts. Unlike anything you've seen before in that category, your first thought will likely be that there has been some mistake. The font size is mostly 16 pt. (or thereabouts), and there are zillions (to coin a "Fred" term) of fonts within the text of these books. They look like a 2nd grade reader. In typical Fred fashion the story line is quirky, and through it the reader encounters all sorts of miscellaneous information along with grammar, etc. So really? High School Language Arts? I was not a believer as I started reading these language arts episodes of Fred's adventures. Adventures that started in Sunday School, took him to Australia to "teach" with a mission board, and finally brought him back home to KITTENS university, learning he has been fired. When the first "Your Turn to Play" segment covered indenting paragraphs and sentence end marks, I was shaking my head and concluding that author Stanley Schmidt should have stuck with math. However, I had to write this description, so I followed Fred's inter-continental journey a little longer and found myself realizing a few things that surprised me. 1) I was understanding some grammar concepts that I had never really "gotten" before, 2) there was broad and comprehensive coverage of all things pertaining to English grammar as well as other aspects of language arts, 3) the Your Turn to Play segments provided consistent and continual review, and 4) I was very likely going to remember the grammar from this course because of the quirky Fred connection.

I needed an easy to follow Language arts that my struggling learner can keep up with. Life of Fred math is an excellent program and I have high hopes for this as well.

Last year we used Fix It! Grammar and really enjoyed the layout, but this year we wanted to try something new and exciting! After reviewing the sample material I fell in love with Fred and believe my student will love him, too! What a brilliant way to engage students and leave them wanting more!

Just looking for a different way to teach/learn language skills. My kids get burned out with drill.

My right brain daughter is so frustrated with our current curriculum. I believe she will benefit from this unique approach to teaching language arts.

I chose this based on a review by Cathy Duffy. My daughter is an avid reader and I think she will enjoy this method of learning/reviewing grammar and composition best.
