ENGLISH BASICS

 

DESCRIPTION:  

The goal of the English Basics class is to provide students with a strong foundation in language arts concepts for future work in upper-level high school English classes.  Topics of the class include instruction and practice in grammar, punctuation, parts of speech, spelling rules, expanding vocabulary, diagramming sentences, sentence structure, and improving writing.  The text used for this class is Saxon Grammar and Writing, the 2nd edition.  Families who have used Saxon curriculum for math will recognize a similar format also utilized in the Grammar and Writing program:  incremental daily lessons, periodic review sets, and tests.  In addition to daily practice in grammar, students will also benefit from a systematic writing program that guides them through the process from writing good sentences to composing a complete 5-paragraph essay.  The English Basics class is offered primarily to 8th grade students or to 9th grade students who desire to improve on their grammar and writing skills prior to taking upper-level high school English classes.  Students can expect 2 – 3 hours of homework to prepare for each class meeting.

German 2

DESCRIPTION:

German 2 is a continuation of the skills we began building in German 1.  We take the basic building blocks from level 1, where we learned to introduce ourselves and carry on basic conversation, and branch out to talk about things in the past, present, and future.  We will learn about travel, restaurants, leisure activities, and sports in Germany, all while expanding our command of the language and having a lot of fun.
