English 3 Teacher Edition 3rd Edition
The teacher edition provides ideas to engage students, strategies to enhance instruction, and assessment opportunities to gauge learning. There are 180 lessons divided into 14 chapters. Seven chapters focus on standard English conventions. One chapter focuses on study and research skills. Six writing chapters use the five-step writing process to guide students in writing poetry and narrative, opinion, and informational text. Purposeful, scaffolded lesson content and well-developed questions strengthen critical thinking.
This Bob Jones third edition program maintains a multi-goal focus: teaching written and oral communication while incorporating 21st Century skills (collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and technology literacy), all the while practically applying Biblical principles. Woven through each of the 14 chapters are themes of friendship, authority, work, celebration, and people who are different from us.
The 3-hole-punch, perforated, 386 pg. student worktext bursts with color and activities that involve recalling, speaking, listening, and writing (also incorporating a mentor text). Independent activities, thinking questions, practice pages, and self-monitoring features encourage students to apply skills. Students will utilize learned skills by explaining, persuading, evaluating, and conveying personal experience. Grammar chapters teach concepts with an aim for understanding, writing, speaking (including nonverbals such as tone and demeanor), and learning. Alternatively, the writing chapters provide graphic organizers, grade-level writing models, checklists, and other tools to self-monitor writing tasks. Students will write a sound poem, game instructions, a book review, a persuasive essay, friendly letter, opinion, informative piece, narrative, poetry, and a research report.
The traditional, wrap-around format, two-volume teacher editions provide 180 lessons of necessary guidance and answers for your students. A detailed Lesson Plan Overview gives a birds-eye view of the year. You’ll find teacher scripted sentences (in blue) and icons to help locate specific teaching elements. For example, BWS labels identify Biblical Worldview Shaping where students focus on and apply a Bible passage or concept. Gear icons identify reading questions that focus on higher-order skills. You’ll also find differentiated learning options and composition grading rubrics. Other tools include a Gospel explanation, a handbook including a thesaurus, capitalization rules, abbreviations, and songs (to learn parts of speech), and lesson aids (sentence diagramming, such as rubrics, charts, and answer keys). Additionally, an assessments packet includes seven, two-page tests connected to the grammar chapters and a test on study/research skills. A separate test answer key is also available.
Reviews parts of speech previously learned, adding pronouns. Studies and reviews antonyms, synonyms, homonyms, and correct use of verbs. Introduces paragraph composition and development. Toolkit CD and Worktext Answer Key are included in Teacher's Ed.
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.
