Writing/Grammar 8 Home School Kit 3ED
Writing & Grammar 8 presents clear instruction in writing and grammar, including an overview of the writing process and many focused writing activities. Writing & Grammar 8 reviews the eight parts of speech, five basic sentence patterns, usage, and mechanics, and discusses grammar elements such as participles, gerunds, and infinitives. Writing projects include a news report, a character profile, a short fable, and an in-class essay.
Reviews all skills presented in grade 7, then completes instruction of parts of speech, giving special attention to verbs, adverbs, qualifiers, and conjunctions. Emphasis is on essay writing, beginning with lessons on proper paragraph construction.
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.
