How to Teach the Course
Language Arts 300 teaches grammar, spelling, and penmanship. Students identify nouns, verbs, adjectives, and sentence subject, and begin diagramming. Language mechanics taught include punctuation, capitalization, and subject-verb agreement. A creative writing lesson is in each Light-Unit. Students learn to use contents pages, indexes, dictionaries, and encyclopedias.
Use the LA Diagnostic Test (DOWNLOAD here for STUDENT and TEACHER) to place new students. Teachers should introduce the new concept, spelling words, and penmanship; students can then work independently.
The Reference Chart explains part of speech, punctuation, and more.
