Category Description for BJU Press Curriculum:

We are pleased to be able to distribute BJU Press curriculum to our customers. Most homeschoolers are already familiar with their materials. For those who are not, BJU is a Christian university located in South Carolina that produces and markets curriculum materials for Christian schools as well as home schools. Probably the most homeschool-friendly full-curriculum supplier, they have not only accommodated homeschoolers, but have continually worked to make their materials better suited to the homeschooling family. Many of their courses now contain manuals written specifically for the home school setting, and visuals and supplemental materials have been "pared down" from the bulkier visuals still used in classrooms. While other curriculum suppliers initially frowned on distributing teacher materials to homeschoolers, and provided only expensive classroom versions, Bob Jones quickly embraced homeschoolers, readily allowing them access to teacher's editions and, eventually, producing less expensive spiral-bound or paperbound versions to save money for homeschooling families. Their materials are all top quality. They are professionally prepared, educationally sound, and Biblically-based. Used in Christian school classrooms across the country for years and constantly improved, they are courses you can trust in your homeschool as well. We have long been fans of Bob Jones curriculum materials, having used courses in almost every subject area for one child or another through the years. In our particular situation (seven children, Mom and Dad sharing in teaching as well as in running Rainbow Resource Center), a well-constructed, teacher-ready course can be a God-send. Although we have used a variety of methods and curriculums in our homeschool through the years (and continue to do so), we strongly feel that the Bob Jones materials we have used have helped to produce excellent, college-ready students. Unless you have a particularly strong aversion to textbooks of any kind, at any level, we highly recommend these materials to you.

Curriculum can be found by subject area in our catalog; see index for page numbers. A free scope and sequence is available below, with specific information by grade level.

Category Description for BJU Press Writing & Grammar:

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.

Category Description for BJU Press Writing & Grammar Grade 6:

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.

We have used this textbook in previous years. You sell it at a lower cost than the publisher.
Jill B on Nov 12, 2018
We have enjoyed the style of BJU Press's text books. They are engaging, and student friendly. These books introduce concepts in bite sized pieces, then apply those concepts to already taught material. They vary the work between grammar (punctuation, usage, parts of speech, etc.), and actual composition. Literature is also intermixed.

love bob jones. found your site on google
Jeff M on Aug 13, 2018
I chose BJU English 6 because my daughter learned more from English 5 than she had in every other English/Language Arts curriculum we had used in the past. We have no reason to expect English 6 will disappoint!
Dana K on May 29, 2018

because it is colorful and will keep their attention more
Rebecca Q on Aug 22, 2017
Very thorough Grammar program - can be a bit of overkill on the practice but we just scale back the amount of problems done each day. Gives a solid background in Grammar.
Cristi S on Jun 27, 2017
My daughters and I have really enjoyed using the BJU English curriculum. I used this last year for my daughter who will be in 7th grade next year, so I decided to purchase this for my daughter who will now be in 6th grade.

BJU Writing & Grammar is easier to use as homeschoolers, compared to Voyages in English

We love Bob Jones for Writing and Grammar. Workbooks are colorful and keep the students attention. Teacher manuals are easy to use as well.

Is the text very religious in nature? I find that when grammar and composition try to tie in too much with religious topics, the focus on the actual grammar/comp gets lost on my kids.
A shopper on Feb 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is a Christian textbook, but I don't find the text religious in nature. The lessons are very focused on the topic at hand and explained in a clear, precise way.

BJU English 6 gets a thumbs up from us.
I would recommend. We like it as a fresh change from Abeka. Abeka is good, but the same thing each year was leaving us bored. This continues to teach the same skills but with a different look and layout. My daughter seems to like it. We like how it varies w/ each chapter(between composition & grammar skills) I like how creativity in composition is taught. The variety of pictures and clip art on each page keeps her attention.
