    Hi. I am thinking of starting a Literature course with my 10yo son. I’m guessing Middle School Literature is the place to start. Am I right? He has already read or we have read aloud some of the books in all the different courses.

    All my children are required to finish Old Western Culture when they are older, so he will get there eventually, but I feel at the moment it will be overwhelming for him.

    Are the American and British/World lit courses on the same level as Middle School or in between that and Old Western Culture?

    Hi Marle! You are correct, MS Lit would be the most appropriate for your son, if all the books listed are ones that you want to study.

    American Lit and Brit & World Lit were aimed at high school students, but for some of the books don’t go into the depth that Old Western Culture.

    All of the courses have sample lessons, which I would recommend you view to make the most informed decision. Let me know if you need any help!

    My son will be 12 and going into 7th grade. Would it be possible to split the MS lit over 2 years? We have plans to do a different writing program, so I don’t want to overwhelm him.

      All of our courses can be spread out at the user’s desired pace. Just complete what you want, the rest will be marked incomplete for you to finish at another time. This may be useful if—as you indicate—you want to incorporate some more writing into the English course as well as avoid overwhelming your son.
