English 7th Grade Set
Sentence structure, diagramming subjects and predicates, helping verbs and verb phrases and irregular verbs. Nouns as subjects, direct objects and predicate nominatives are studied. Seventh grade students also study proper, possessive, and predicate adjectives and prepositions, interjections, and conjunctions and how to use them properly in sentence structure. Students learn to use colons, semicolons, apostrophes, quotation marks, parentheses, dashes and hyphens effectively in sentences. They read a chosen novel, write a daily journal as they read the novel and complete a final review of the novel. They complete this process several times throughout the year with different types of literary works: novels, short stories and poetry. Spelling, vocabulary and grammar are strengthened.
Designed as an independent learning curriculum, the Starline Press English programs cover a variety of language arts skills at grade appropriate levels. Aligned to California state standards (Please see publisher website for CA state standards correlation), each grade level provides self- directed instruction with minimal teacher supervision. Grades 3-8 complete twelve units (booklets) per year, with units averaging 24-60 pgs. each with a suggested 3 week completion timeframe. Grades 9-12 complete 5 booklets per semester/10 per year. Consumable booklets are colorfully illustrated and soft cover. Each grade level includes vocabulary lists, fill in the blank questions, chapter reviews, and unit tests. Literature studies are included in the fifth grade, seventh grade and upper high school levels. You may wish to include additional, grade appropriate literature with the other levels. Available only in complete sets which include score and test keys. ~ Deanne
