January 20 at 9:54 PM

I seen a post that suggested Complete Curriculum and i was wondering if any one uses it.  Is it worth the price and time? What do the teacher editions have in them and include? I can see samples of the student books but it doesnt show any samples of the teacher editions. Im trying to find a curriculum that has the teacher and student books but dont cost an arm and leg.

    if it's the same one Cathy Duffy reviews, it says she has it in one of her top 101 picks, which kid of surprised me as my knee jerk reaction to looking at their home page was that it wasn't going to be good. But it doesn't seem so much she really reviews it, but more just sort of explains it...

    from poking around the site quickly, it looks like you can buy a digital download of individual pieces, i.e.: jsut the social studies... I might look at the samples more closely for science and social studies since I'm always looking for ideas in those areas and they claim to give hands-on activities in science.... 

    if it's really only $29 for a year of everything, you kind of can't lose, even if you only use a small bit of it and end up buying a lot of other curriculum pieces.

    ok, since I am convinced everything is a giant Common Core conspiracy (have I totally lost it that I actually find it fishy that their initials are CC also??), I did what I could to google the company, I can find almost no information about it. But Complete Curriculum LLC is based in Gibraltar, Michigan, is priavtely held, and has three employees: Steve Pacherco, Kent Rhinehart and Michael Conti. They seem to all have a background in IT - can't seem to find any connection to educational training or research.

    so, hard to say... I use some work books that are cheap and recycling content that is decades old. Is a digital version any worse or better? Do I need to make tinfoil hats for the whole family, stock up on canned goods and disconnect our internet access??

    ok, sorry to be so annoying and harp on this... but they aren't even any good at IT, since their links to download free samples and the books' tables of contents don't work... so I can't see what 4th grade social studies looks like anyway!

    I think it boils down to: You get what you pay for. It's cheap stuff.

    LOL!  

    Yeah, I couldn't get them to work and eventually gave up.  Thanks for letting me know it wasn't just me.
