    I have a question for anyone who has used The Power in Your Hands. I was thinking about using this for my daughter who will be in tenth grade. My son used it briefly, and we liked it well enough, but ended up going a different route. What I do not like about it is starting with persuasive essays. Is it possible to jump around within the book and not be lost? I have a different resource I want to use for persuasive, and another resource for literary essays. I would like to use some of the other units though. Would that work, or does it build from persuasive?

    Thanks.

    My son used the book this year – it was a ton of work, but very, very good.  My mom (Grandma) taught the class – this is her opinion: “It does build on itself to some extent, but I think all the chapters could be great as standalones. I thought it was excellent. She is extremely thorough except on the citation part which she didn’t go into very much, and I was thankful. And she makes it fun. The teacher’s book is a treasure. She tells how to grade the papers and gives answers.” Hope that helps!
