How to Teach the Course
The reader Open Windows is filled with wholesome, inspiring stories that the entire family will enjoy. Stories like “Sleep-Out Below Zero,” “To Prove a Proverb,” “I Will Not Do It,” and “In Spite of War” convey solid Biblical messages as they teach good reading skills.
The accompanying LightUnits develop comprehension and thinking skills. Students learn to infer information from context, interpret figures of speech, understand and appreciate poetry, and analyze, discern, and apply what they read in a God-pleasing way.
Two or three lessons per week cover a full year’s work, or you may choose to cover the course in one semester. Students may do many exercises independently.
