English 5 Testpack, Second Edition
This Test packet includes one test for each chapter as well as suggestions for grading. Each test includes application of the concepts and skills from the chapter. Tests for the writing chapters may include the use of graphic organizers and proofreading skills.
This edition is much expanded and more colorful. Aimed at "fostering an appreciation of language as a gift from God," this course now teaches more English skills than before. The things covered include sentences, compare-contrast essays, nouns, persuasive business letters, verbs, diamantes and sense poems, study and reference skills, personal narratives, pronouns, book reviews, more verbs, research reports, adjectives and adverbs, writing imaginative instructions, more detail about sentences, and writing a play. This Grade 5 Teacher Edition also contains a Teacher's Toolkit CD-ROM, which has reproducible pages to supplement the lessons, and extra practice pages, Keeping Up activities and writing rubrics. The Home School kit contains all four of the items listed below.
Beginning in grade 2, Bob Jones offers a complete English program at all levels to train students to communicate effectively. Both oral and written skills are developed, with increasing emphasis on composition at the upper levels. Everything that you would expect in an English program is here from mechanics, to word types, grammar (including parts of speech and diagramming), and all types and forms of writing - including analysis and composition. As with all Bob Jones materials, the course integrates Christian themes and references. Teacher's Editions contain daily lesson plans and answers to the student worktext exercises. Student worktexts are consumable and are centered on different themes at each grade level. Testpacks are made up of ready-to-use tests for each chapter, and answers to these are found in the Testpack Key. Brief overviews of skills by grade level are below. Required materials are listed first, followed by asterisked (*) items that are considered optional. Supplemental materials used at multiple grade levels are listed after the grade-level listings. Home School Kits contain Teacher's Edition, Worktext and test material at a lower price.
These materials offer complete coverage of both writing and grammar.
