English 3 incorporates the following: biblical worldview shaping, standard English conventions, and writing. The course integrates speaking, listening, and viewing activities into the lessons. Lessons present language skills as essential tools for oral and written communication in five areas of life, encouraging students to formulate a biblical worldview of communication in their lives. Communication is important to help us maintain friendships, interact properly with authorities, get work done, celebrate what we enjoy, and connect with people who are different from us.
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.

For Grades 2 through 12, Bob Jones offers an English (Writing & Grammar) program to train students in communicating Biblically and effectively. Both oral and written skills are developed, with increasing emphasis on composition at the upper levels. Everything that you would expect in a writing and grammar program is here from mechanics, to word types, grammar (including parts of speech and diagramming), and all types of writing (including journaling, analysis, and various composition tasks). Courses integrate Christian references and will help students apply a Biblical worldview in communication by recalling, explaining, evaluating, formulating, and applying Biblical themes. Teacher’s Editions contain daily lesson plans, additional and differentiated educational suggestions, and answers to the student worktext exercises in wrap-around format. Student worktexts are consumable, and at each grade level, different themes and tasks are introduced in a progressively challenging way. Assessments provide consumable, ready-to-use tests for each chapter; answers are found in the Assessment Key. Home School Kits contain 2-part Teacher's Editions, consumable worktexts, consumable assessments, and an assessments answer key. See grade level descriptions for specific program goals, materials, and assignments. Additional/supplemental materials are no longer found on Teacher CD-ROMs. Instead, these materials are now either included in the TE or are not necessary for home use. You’ll see references to Teacher Tools Online, the TextbookHub, and BJU’s Homeschool Hub. The first two are designed for Christian school teaching needs and only available for schools. The Homeschool Hub is available free to any home educator with account setup and provides scheduling, calendar, gradebook, and planning tools that are not course specific. ~ Ruth
