Product Description:

As the favorite daughter of Chief Powhatan and "sister" to Englishmen John Smith, Pocahontas enjoyed a unique situation of being able to live among the Indians and be friends with the white settlers. When she is kidnapped and held ransom by the Englishmen and her father refuses to surrender to their demands, Pocahontas begins to live completely as a white woman, becoming "Rebecca," denouncing the Indian gods, and eventually marrying John Rolfe.

Jean Fritz has a knack for bringing history to life by sprinkling interesting but little-known facts into the big picture.

Young readers meet some of the great figures and understand some major events from our nation's past in this high-interest series of biographies. 48 pgs.

English III is part of a continuous high school English curricula designed to prepare students for post-high school studies and careers which require strong reading and writing skills. This third of a four-level series builds strong writing skills needed for college and careers. Paradigm high school English is available in a seamless program that begins with English I and continues through English IV. Every grade level (I through IV) focuses on interpretation and development of writing styles.

English III: Writing Skills builds on skills learned in English II: Composition Skills (ENG II, tenth grade*) by continuing to hone writing skills. Students read, write and evaluate different genres carefully assigned to expose students to noble ideals and writing techniques that equip students to craft strong sentences and paragraphs, while becoming effective wordsmiths skilled in producing poems, letters, essays, narratives, editorials, articles, speeches, allegories, and research papers. Students gain experience writing pieces that inform, entertain, persuade and challenge. Students learn to address literary concepts such as cause and effect, logic, premises, comparison, and contrasts.

A major feature of all Paradigm English courses is the vignette approach, carefully designed to engage students to aspire towards noble character and life purpose. During the learning process, students enhance vocabulary, build moral character, and gain insight on how to make wise life choices.
