I'm shopping once again for a language arts curriculum (I've never found one I'm truly satisfied with), and my search this year has led me to the Critical Thinking catalog (actually, they mailed the catalog to my husband, but I'm the curriculum shopper in this house). Anyway...
 
I'm looking at Language Mechanic and Editor in Chief, and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with either/both. Is it worth getting both, or are they similar enough that one will do?

I was homeschooled and I remember using one of the Editor in Chief books (I don't think CDs were an option then).  I remember that I really enjoyed it, but it was just a supplement to other things we used and I don't remember what they were.

My kids like Editor-in-Chief stuff, but I wouldn't call it a curriculum. More a diversion, a supplement. We're pretty much unschoolers, so for my kids the main curriculum was life, and interests, and such. No experience with the other one you mentioned.

Thanks. I think I'll start out with just Language Mechanic and go from there.
