I'm interested in learning more about Drawn Into the Heart of Reading for our soon to be 3rd grader. She's recently developed a voracious love of reading and is stuck in the "Mandie" book series by Lois Leppard. I would like to see her expand her horizons to different genres. I am a self proclaimed biblophile and have no problem finding book lists, however, I'm also intrigued by the DITHOR literary anaylysis, for lack of better wording.
I tried to look back at some of the posts related to HOD. It seems there are some mixed feelings about the program. Is anyone specifically using the Drawn Into the Heart of Reading program? If so, what level? Pros/Cons? It appears as though the Teacher Guide spans the full curriculum of 2nd -8th grade. What is the benefit of the student workbook?
Thanks so much,
