Writing/Grammar 12 Student 3rd Edition (copyright update)
The Writing & Grammar 12 Student Worktext contains very thorough explanations of grammatical concepts such as the parts of speech, phrases and clauses, usage, and mechanics. It introduces advanced grammatical concepts such as tense sequence, perfect verbs, and adverbial nouns. It also includes reference chapters on library skills and study skills. Throughout the text, students are encouraged to apply grammatical knowledge to communication. Students are led through the writing process and are given specific writing assignments throughout the course. Projects include a research paper, a literary analysis, a folktale, a narrative poem, a hymn, an analytical essay, an interview, a memoir, an analogy, and an in-class essay.
Briefly reviews grammatical concepts already covered, then moves on to new material. Focus is on principles of effective writing in all forms; description, narration, exposition, and persuasion. Composition assignments include writing resumes, humorous essays, and interviews.
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.
