Middle School Literature and Grammar – gr 6-8


Students will experience all aspects of Language Arts in this literature-based course.  In class we will discover plot, characterization and other literary elements, touch on grammar and vocabulary.  At home, students will enjoy engaging in great literature and work on a combination of skills at home:  reading, vocabulary, writing, and grammar.  Most importantly, students will learn to identify and analyze an author’s message, and then thoughtfully articulate a biblical response to said message.

In addition to the reading the literary selections in the textbook, we will enjoy reading and study two novels, The Bronze Bow and Holes, as a class. Please note that in order to make class discussion easier, the instructor will purchase the same edition of each novel for the students. The cost of the two novels is included in the materials fee.

For our grammar lessons we will use the ingenious Fix It! Grammar series.
