A Homeschooling Classic

The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to extend our GroupBuy for the new, updated version of the homeschooling classic 102 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum by Cathy Duffy, a nationally known curriculum reviewer.

A Brand New Edition!

Selecting the right curriculum can be a time consuming, heart wrenching task for any family that chooses home education. Now, homeschooling guru Cathy Duffy helps makes the selection of the right resources for your child easy with the publication of her brand new 102 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum.

Cathy guides you through the process, offering her "Top Picks" from each subject area, narrowing down to a manageable number of choices. Parents no longer need to sort through the entire universe of products before they can find something suitable.

In 102 Top Picks, Cathy narrows the focus and simplifies the curriculum selection process with questionnaires and charts. She walks her readers through the process of figuring out their preferences in terms of a philosophy of education, learning styles, and goal setting.

A major feature of 102 Top Picks is the charts showing the 102 Top Picks in relation to educational approaches, learning styles, and practical features such as prep time needed; design for independent, one-on-one, or group learning; and ease of use for the teacher. The charts are available FREE with the purchase of any digital version on this GroupBuy page.

Complete reviews of each of the Top Picks provide parents additional information to make the best choices for each of their children.

Top Pick's assisted me in not only defining my style of teaching but how each of my children learn best. With the curriculum descriptions I was able to select and consider curriculum that would work best for my family saving me much time, money and frustration. I have suggested this book to many other homeschooler's and will always suggest this book to those just entering homeschool.

Cathy Duffy's Top Picks has been my #1 go-to reference for curriculum decisions through my 16 years of homeschooling. I have read other reviewers, but I have found that Cathy's recommendations have worked well for our family through the years. I had enough SmartPoints to upgrade to the revised edition pdf from my well-used paperback edition, and was very happy to have the new reviews at my fingertips. I make reference to Cathy Duffy when "talking curriculum" with friends and new homeschoolers.

This book was instrumental in helping me make some difficult choices about our plan for homeschooling. It is so much more than a book of recommendations it's a book that will walk you through the process from beginning to end. I felt so overwhelmed by my decision to homeschool all 3 of my boys this year but Cathy's 101 top picks really helped me gain clarity and focus on everything that's important about choosing a curriculum. When people tell me that they are thinking about homeschooling their kids, I tell them to read this book NOW so they c...(more)

I have loved this book! Before reading it, I wasn't sure which curriculum was a good fit for my family. This book helped me decide which curriculum was a good fit for each kid based on their personality and learning style. I was also able to find some great curriculum that would work for all the kids together, which saves so much time along with allowing us all to learn together during certain times of the day. I have since recommended this book to others. Thank you for offering it at such a great price!

Because I am a veteran homeschoolers (20+yrs), I was a bit skepticial about buying 101 top picks. None the less, I bought it and the information was invaluable. Not only did it reinforce some ideas I have learned through the years, I learned about the basic learning styles and the importance of matching curriculum with learning styles. Cathy made it easy to review curriculum with the easily understandable charts which saved me a lot of time. It covers a lot of publishers and varieties of curriculum thoroughly. I recommend this for anyone teachi...(more)

As a first year homeschool parent I was having a difficult time trying to select the right curriculum for our family. I purchased this on the recommendations of others and what a blessing! This book helped me tremendously in narrowing the focus on my teaching style, my children's learning personalities and the curriculum that best matched our styles. I am so thankful to have this wonderful resource and will recommend it highly to other homeschoolers.
Jessica F., Co-op Member
I love Cathy Duffy's 101 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum! For new homeschoolers, this book is one of the best introductions possible to the myriad possibilities of homeschooling. If you've been homeschooling for some time already, it's an excellent refresher and summary of some of the new options you may want to consider. This year, I needed the reminder to focus first on what my priorities and goals for teaching were, before I started deciding what curriculum to use.

I also appreciate how when Ms. Duffy reviews a curriculum, she answ...(more)

"Do I really need the updated version?" I had asked myself re. 101 Top Picks. Yes! I decided when I was able to get the ebook at a greatly reduced price. I am in my 8th year homeschooling & 100 Top Picks has been a primary resource for me.

Most of the book seems similar to the previous version, but there are big changes to the top picks. Having the new one inspired me to read through the goal setting & learning sections, applying the principals to my younger students.

The ebook is not nearly as convenient as a traditional book, for comp...(more)

I've purchased Cathy's books in the past to help me find my way in the sea of curriculum choices available today. I like her clear chart system that helps me quickly discover which programs will fit my mixed group of learners. It cut down on a lot of options that would never be suitable for their learning styles. I highly recommend it to anyone who is getting bogged down in the options available and who wants to make an informed decision.
Melanie Jo, Co-op Member
Oh my goodness, what a calming & reassuring resource this has turned out to be! I have spent the last couple of years trying to get the hang of homeschooling but floundering the whole time. Yes I have read all the blogs and talked to many other homeschoolers, but it's hard to apply advice from one family's experience and expect it to fit my own.

For the first time I feel like I have a solid direction to head, thanks to Cathy's careful guidance. She has helped me figure out my teaching style/preference as well as my daughter's style of lear...(more)
