Preparing for Usefulness: English 8 is an advanced grammar course with 124 lessons divided into 11 chapters. This comprehensive, God-honoring text is easy-to-use and teaches key concepts of grammar, mechanics, and writing. Plans include lessons on applying upper-level grammar concepts, developing theme and style in stories, improving sentence coherence and structure, using rhythm and parallelism in poetry, taking organized notes, writing persuasive arguments, polishing oral and written reports, proofreading, revising, and more!
Since this is an advanced text, Preparing for Usefulness: English 8 is scheduled as part of high school language arts in U.S. History I and U.S. History II. It is divided over two years in those guides.
