Psalm 32:8

Middle School English with Writing: Level B

Description

:
This  course
 will focus
 on  English
 grammar,
 literature,
 composition,
 and  will include
 a small
vocabulary
 component.
 The  students
 will learn
 how
 to  completely
 parse
 and  diagram
 sentences,
 how
 to  
avoid
 common
 usage
 errors,
 and  will review
 the  rules
 of  capitalization
 and  punctuation.
 Persuasive
 writing
will be  taught
 using
The Lost Tools of Writing
and  selected
 literature.
 The  students
 will learn
 to  choose
 an  
issue,
 gather
 evidence
 from
 the  text,
 organize
 that
 evidence,
 and  present
 it in an  organized
 and  compelling
manner.
This  “B”  course
 is perfect
 for  older
 middle
 schoolers,
 students
 who
 have
 completed
 the  “A”  class
 or  something
similar,
 or  who
 already
 have
 a partial
 grasp
 on  parsing
 sentences
 and  writing
 essays.
  Although,
 the  same
 grammar
text  will  be  used
 as in  the  “A”  class,
 the  pace
 will  be  faster,
 and  the  whole
 text  will  be  covered.
 Similarly,
 the  same
writing
 process
 will  be  used
 for  both
 the  “A”  and  ‘B”  classes,
 but  different
 novels
 will  be  chosen
 for  each.
Students
 in this  class
 will  read
 nine
 novels
 and  complete
 nine
 essays,
 adding
 new
 components
 to  each
 one.
