How to Teach the Course
Language Arts 700 integrates grammar, spelling, and penmanship into one easy-to-use package. Grammar and punctuation skills are introduced incrementally at the beginning of each daily lesson, followed by exercises reviewing the latest material as well as more familiar, almost-mastered skills. Each day’s lesson concludes with penmanship and spelling practice.
In LightUnit 707, students read But Not Forsaken, a book about refugees after WWII, and do a literary analysis of the story. This full-year course also covers active and passive voice, verbals, clauses, compound and complex sentence structure, writing an exposition, consistent verb tenses, and dangling/misplaced modifiers.
