How to Teach the Course
Language Arts 800 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 freshest material as well as more familiar, almost-mastered skills. Each day’s lesson concludes with penmanship and spelling practice.
This full-year course includes a research paper project for the student to complete along with a standard bibliography. They are taught how to choose vivid verbs and eliminate redundancy in their writing. Also covered are transitive/intransitive verbs, basic and perfect tenses, concrete/abstract nouns, categorizing pronouns, elliptical clauses, and figures of speech.
