In this day of “txt-speak,” sound bites, and other verbal shortcuts, it is still necessary for your child to learn proper, God-honoring speech and writing skills!
English Grammar Skills by Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum equips students with a strong understanding of the eight parts of speech, grammar, and writing skills.
Students are introduced to character-building life principles and vignettes of persons who model positive life styles. Lessons and activity questions are based on the vignette in a clever approach that ties English grammar skills to real-life situations.
Each lesson is introduced with a theme art illustration that draws the student emotionally into the text. This course is designed for eighth grade but is an excellent “brush up” or “recovery” course for under-performing high school students or adults who are weak in English grammar skills.
The vignette approach is carefully designed to engage students to aspire towards noble character and life purpose. During the learning process, students enhance vocabulary, build moral character, and gain insight on how to make wise life choices.
The course consists of five, saddle-stitched chapters in an 8-1/2 X 11-inch size magazine format. The five chapters of text are supplemented with five corresponding activity books that guide students chronologically through the lessons. The combined set of texts and activity books are applicable in regular classrooms or guided, individualized learning programs.
