Language Arts & Literature 7

 

This language arts course integrates the studies of writing, literature, and ancient history. In literature, books like The Children’s Homer and The Bronze Bow, and poems such as The Destruction of Sennacherib and Ozymandias deepen the students’ understanding of the ancient world. Writing topics strengthen what students are learning in history because they are based on the historical events and noteworthy people of Mesopotamia, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, and ancient Rome. Put That in Writing, the composition textbook, instructs students in how to write with formality and develop properly-structured, logical paragraphs.  The grammar text, Easy Grammar, presents students with a comprehensive review of their previous grammar studies and introduces them to more complex concepts such as gerunds and infinitives, as well as the perfect and progressive tenses.
