BJU Press Writing & Grammar Grade 6
Begins with a review of sentence types and then reviews the parts of speech intermingled with different types of writing. Nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions are reviewed. A writing chapter follows each grammar chapter to help provide a strong link between the two. The student will write a personal narrative, newspaper editorial, instructions, a research paper, historical fiction, compare and contrast essay, free verse, limerick, and a cover letter. Most chapters include a "Literature Link" which is an excerpt from a story used for writing practice. Every chapter contains a chapter review and a cumulative review. There is a "Writing Handbook" and "Grammar Handbook" at the back of the student book. These reference tools are handy to have around while working on an assignment. The Teacher Toolkit CD-ROM is included with the Teacher edition. This CD-ROM contains reproducible pages to supplement the lessons. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to access the information on the Toolkit CD-ROM.
