Literature& Language Arts I?
This package includes:
Separate Parent & Student Guides
Includes a 36-Week, 4-Day?schedule designed to save one day a week for co-ops, music lessons, sports, field trips or other extra-curricular activities. Includes colorful map answer keys, discussion questions and answers as well as background notes.?The two guides mirror each other exactly, except that this Parent Guide provides extra notes about the books and fills in the answers to the student questions and assignments. This format allows you to engage with and guide your students without reading all their books. It also allows students to direct their own day-to-day studies, if you prefer.?
Literature & Language Arts
With our American Historical Literature & Language Arts course your student will read great classics like?To Kill a Mockingbird,?The Call of the Wild, and?The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. These literary treasures will help your student’s writing abilities, vocabulary, cultural literacy, and love of learning. They’ll also stimulate thinking as your student encounters interesting ideas, characters, and situations.
The Language Arts portion corresponds closely with the literature, offering a complete writing program that develops critical thinking skills, literary analysis, and creative writing.?We provide instruction on how to compose various writing assignments, namely: narrative, argumentative, expository, persuasive and descriptive.? We also require a 4 week research project and various reporting assignments (similar to a periodical).? Each writing assignment concludes with a series of evaluation questions for the parent to analyze the quality of the student?s finished work.
The following?OPTIONAL?supplements?Wordly Wise 3000, Book 8 & Teacher’s Key? and?Analogies 1?is scheduled in the guide for your convenience but not required. (Not included in the All-Subject Package but can be added using the?Customize?Tab).
