Category Description for English I: Language Skills (Grade 9):

Reviews parts of speech and their application (including diagramming), reading and evaluating literature, sentence and paragraph construction, effective wordsmithing and experience in informing, entertaining, persuading, and challenging compositions.



English I: Language Skills builds on skills learned in English Grammar Skills by reviewing the eight parts of speech and their application. English 1 requires students to read and evaluate literature, carefully selected to expose students to noble ideals and writing techniques that equip students to craft strong sentences and paragraphs, while becoming effective wordsmiths skilled in expressing high ideals and beliefs through 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.

English I: Language Skills is designed to prepare ninth grade students/high school freshmen for post-high school studies and careers which require strong communication skills. English I: Language Skills is packaged in five soft-cover chapters of text, with five companion student activity books. A teacher's resource kit (TRK) contains 15 section quizzes and five chapter tests to measure student progress. 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, character, and wisdom. English I is designed to earn one high school transcript credit.

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


"Designed to be self-teaching." These are magic words for many homeschoolers particularly at the high school level. And while this curriculum has many positive characteristics, its self-teaching aspect is sure to rank high. But don't overlook the other positives broad coverage of grammar, usage, and mechanics, vocabulary, literary elements, and composition as well as encouraging and character-building anecdotes and principles. Although utilizing a black and white format, the graphics are well designed and interesting. The Texts (pgs vary from 50 to 70 pgs) follow a pattern: vocabulary, vignette illustrating a life principle, and teaching segments accompanied by quiz prompts. All straight-forward and easy to complete. The Activities books are consumable with reading comprehension questions from the vignette, a vocabulary exercise, and several exercises reinforcing the Text's teaching segments. Students are expected to check their own work in the Activities and if they score 85% or better on the quizzes are not required before taking the tests that are provided. The Teacher's Resource Kit comes as a CD or black line masters. English I can be purchased either as both items together or as CD only. English II, III, or IV are only available in the CD version and Texts for these courses are pdf documents (can read on computer or print out) on a separate CD-ROM. Teacher Resource CD content is identical to the black line masters and includes the tables of contents for the textbooks, the Activity answer keys, section quizzes and answer keys, Chapter tests and answer keys as well as some helpful administrative resources. Full Course Kits include the Texts and Activities books for all five chapters as well as the Teacher's Resource Kit (masters and CD). (Please note the publisher is transitioning from CD's to digital downloads.) ~ Janice

I have used Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum in the past and have been very pleased with the thoroughness and organization of the material, especially for a self-directed student.

It covers many parts of language arts in one program. Also, it has a conservative bent.

Is this curriculum secular?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We list this curriculum as not containing religious instruction. It is based on moral principles and does include some biographies of Christian figures along with others.
English is my DS's least favorite subject. The self-directed aspect of this with little teacher involvement is appealing. Is it necessary to supplement more grammar, writing, or literature or is it satisfactory as is?
Crissy on Jun 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This level is very grammar intense and requires little patent involvement. There was no composition or literature, but I think the upper levels include those items.
