English 6 Testpack, Second Edition
This Test packet includes one test for each chapter of English 6 (2nd ed.) 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.
Begins with a review of sentence types and then reviews the parts of speech intermingled with different types of writing. Nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions are reviewed. A writing chapter follows each grammar chapter to help provide a strong link between the two. The student will write a personal narrative, newspaper editorial, instructions, a research paper, historical fiction, compare and contrast essay, free verse, limerick, and a cover letter. Most chapters include a "Literature Link" which is an excerpt from a story used for writing practice. Every chapter contains a chapter review and a cumulative review. There is a "Writing Handbook" and "Grammar Handbook" at the back of the student book. These reference tools are handy to have around while working on an assignment. The Teacher Toolkit CD-ROM is included with the Teacher edition. This CD-ROM contains reproducible pages to supplement the lessons. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to access the information on the Toolkit CD-ROM.
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.
