This challenging class will focus on spelling, pronunciation, vocabulary, comprehension, listening, grammar and punctuation, critical thinking, and writing. A variety of learning games and movement activities will be used. For most 6th and 7th grade level students, this class will cover a full year of comprehensive language arts. Homework time should be planned for 4 days per week minimum. Most students will need one hour per homework day, on average.
Students will read and study literature and complete integrated lessons with the goals of helping them progress from Fall through Spring. We will go slow enough to learn the background stories of some of the authors and their stories. Short dictations reinforce Bible truths, that relate to the story, and provide opportunities to improve listening, penmanship and discover possible weaknesses. Review in proper sentence construction will lead to instruction in proper paragraph instruction. Students will gain experience with critical analysis questions designed to help them consider and analyze the intellectual, moral, and spiritual issues in the stories and weigh them with reference to scripture
Students taking this class are expected to be able to write in complete sentences using proper grammar. This is not geared toward remedial supplement.
Novels will be selected from Progeny Press (PP), Memoria Press (MP) and Total Language Plus (TLP).
PP= study guides for literature, culturally relevant and examined from a Christian perspective.
MP= study guides for literature- students are required to think about what they read and learn to identify the important content of each story- to develop superior readers. Advanced skill of composing answers that are clear and concise.
The curriculum is to be determined, but for use during the first semester, may include the Master Books Language Arts program called Elementary Bible & English Grammar.
