Category Description for Language Lessons Series by Sandi Queen:

Pick-up-and-go language arts - Charlotte Mason style. Copywork, dictation, and narration from interesting, vintage works including poetry, speeches, and stories. Full-color art reproductions typically depicting a long ago, slower, more rural lifestyle. A full spectrum of language arts skills starting with phonics and handwriting and progressing through creative writing. A gentle but thorough introduction to grammar and mechanics with periodic review. An emphasis on creative expression and poetry appreciation. What's not to like? This is a far cry from repetitive, dry grammar books and their accompanying boredom.

There are 180 teacher-student interactive lessons in each book. Lesson times are very short (5-10 minutes) in the early books and progress to about 30-45 minutes in the upper level books. The beginning books are scripted while later books progress into a warm, instructive, conversational narrative. These perfect-bound books are designed to become a consumable student portfolio. Often - particularly in the early grades - students are asked to draw pictures on left-side facing pages all of which are left purposely blank. Except for the high school book, copywork/dictation space is provided. Grammar exercises requiring editing or some sort of marking (i.e. circle subject; underline predicate) always have adequate space for completion. There is no prep for the teacher although interaction and discussion with the student and oversight of their work is necessary. Answer keys provide time-saving answers for the objective portions but may not be needed for the younger levels.

Grammar coverage is comprehensive and thorough although practice is minimal. Continual review is provided for all grammar concepts once introduced and skills are carefully sequenced through the years to encourage concept understanding. Descriptive, narrative and creative writing are all covered in varying and increasing (through the levels) degrees. However, paragraph construction skills are minimal and essay construction is found only in High School Volume 2. ~ Janice

I chose this book because it is the answer key for the Charlotte Mason based curriculum text with the same name.

I chose Language Lessons for High School Volume 2 because my 10th grader needs a gentle but thorough book for developing essay writing skills before beginning dual enrollment classes. According to Cathy Duffy, this volume of Language Lessons focuses on different types of essay writing.

Does this give thorough writing instruction for the essays or does it assume they already know how to format the different types of essays?

BEST ANSWER: Language Lessons for High School V2 gives a basic overview of each type of essay: comparison, contrast, descriptive, narrative, persuasive, and creative writing. After the basic overview of the particular type of essay, this book shows an example of that type of essay and encourages the student to analyze it. Then, it teaches brainstorming, outlining, and how to write introduction/body/conclusion. it is not as thorough or as step-by-step directed as Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) or Jump In Writing (Apologia); however, it does give basic instruction on the different types of essays and how to compose them. It seems to work well for review and writing practice for my sophomore who used IEW earlier this year. It could stand alone for a student who is a natural writer or who has had some previous instruction. Language Lessons for High School V2 also includes a great deal of dictation/editing exercises; the parent reads a paragraph aloud, while the student writes the information in a notebook. Afterwards, the student uses the textbook to go back and make corrections to his/her dictation writing. Dictation is an effective way to teach correct writing/grammar/spelling. All in all, this program teaches writing skills in a natural (and usually painless) way, but it can be frustrating for students who want more step-by-step instructions.
