Grammar & Writing
This course is 30 weeks and will cover 2 semesters. Middle school grammar builds the foundation for future skills and doesn't have to be boring or difficult! We will be using the BJU Writing & Grammar 8
text, which presents clear instruction in writing and grammar, including an overview of the writing process and many focused writing activities. Writing & Grammar 8
reviews the eight parts of speech, five basic sentence patterns, usage, and mechanics, and discusses grammar elements such as participles, gerunds, and infinitives. Writing projects include a news report, a character profile, a short fable, and an in-class essay. Each week, your student will learn and understand the covered skills before continuing practice exercises at home.
