This resource is a traditional language arts series that provides grade appropriate instruction in phonics, spelling, vocabulary, grammar (including diagramming), word usage, penmanship, dictionary/library skills, all forms of composition (formal and creative), book reports, literature analysis, and poetry over the course of the series. Thorough and comprehensive in terms of coverage, user-friendliness is fundamental to the series, which allows the student to work independently except in the early elementary grade levels. Teacher oversight is expected but made easy by teacher materials that provide answers, grading rubrics, and lesson plans (amount of detail declines with grade level). Student materials are attractive and offer color highlights with some illustrations. The new Sunrise 2nd Edition offers full-color illustrations with instruction sequences in color-shaded boxes. All content reflects a conservative Christian viewpoint. Course components vary a bit with grade level but always include sets of ten magazine-size, consumable student worktexts (LightUnits) coupled with teacher materials. Quizzes and unit tests are part of each LightUnit.
The LightUnits Set Teacher Materials vary with the edition and grade level but, in general provide daily lessons, answers, alternate tests, and grading helps.
Language arts programs listed in this section cover most areas of language arts (reading/literature, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting) in one curriculum, although some skill areas may be covered with less intensity than a focused, stand-alone course.
