In this video, I'm comparing two well-known language arts curriculums for homeschool: The Good and the Beautiful LA and Abeka LA. Both of these curriculums claim to be all-inclusive language arts curriculums in elementary. One has been around for decades, while the other is much newer, but each has a strong following in the homeschool world. In this video I'll compare and contrast the two and talk about some of the pros and cons of The Good and the Beautiful and of Abeka.

The language arts curriculum that is right for your family is going to depend on what you're looking for and what your child needs. That's why this video doesn't have any definitive conclusion that one is "better" than the other, but I hope that it is helpful to be able to see some of the strengths and weaknesses of the two programs.

One thing I did mean to talk about, in regards to The Good and the Beautiful, is that my impression after using it is that it definitely has a less overtly-Christian feel to it, in comparison to Abeka or other Christian curriculums. The Good and the Beautiful definitely has a worldview based on one God who created the world, but other than that, it seemed to simply keep a focus on morality, rather than the applied theology that you might see in a more overtly Christian program.

You can find The Good and the Beautiful Language Arts available for sale (or free download for levels 1-5) on their company website, and Abeka Language Arts curriculum sets available for sale on their website.
