Publisher Description:

This course is designed to equip students with a strong understanding of the eight parts of speech, grammar, and writing skills. The course consists of five, saddle-stitched chapters in an 81/2 X 11 inch size magazine format. The five chapters of text are supplemented with five corresponding activity books that guide students chronologically through the lessons. The combined set of texts and activity books are applicable in regular classrooms or guided, individualized learning programs.

Students are introduced to character-building life principles and vignettes of persons who role model positive life styles. Each lesson and the corresponding activity questions are based on the vignette in a clever approach that ties English grammar skills to real-life situations. Every grammar rule or part of speech is illustrated twice with sentences drawn from the vignette. This technique connects students to the study of English in a practical and engaging manner. Students experience the highly effective individualized learning approaches that enhances content mastery.

Each lesson is introduced with a theme art illustration that draws the student emotionally into the text. This course is designed for eighth grade but is an excellent "brush up or "recovery course for under-performing high school students or adults who are weak in English grammar skills.

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.

"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

My son wanted to try this curriculum, since his sister loves the format on her SS and Science subjects. I enjoy them too. I'm reading the booklets after my daughter completes them.

I read good things about using this curriculum with children who have dyslexia and attention problems. I figured I'd try it out.

My dd has done several grammar programs that we were happy with, but did not translate with her retaining concepts. We love the fact that she will read motivating stories that would hopefully inspire her to push thorough obstacles with optimism (without hearing it from Mom all the time, which becomes monotone)We plan on working through this at a fast pace to hopefully complete the complete paradigm English course.

I have a wanna-be professional writer (9th grade) and I want to make sure he understands grammar.

Great for covering the basics
This has been a good fit for my daughter with dyslexia. It is not colorful and flashy, good for those easily distracted by that, but not so fun for those needing that. Covers materials in a methodical order. We will be taking 2 years to work through it.
