Progressing with Courage: English 6 is an advanced grammar course with 132 lessons divided into 11 chapters. This comprehensive, God-honoring text is easy-to-use and teaches key concepts of grammar, mechanics, and writing. The lessons include both oral and written work, and all of the basic parts of speech are covered, including prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. Lessons on diagramming, taking notes, outlining, using reference materials, writing directions, developing stories, structuring paragraphs, using poetic devices, and writing reports are included.
English 6 is one option for English scheduled in Revival to Revolution and Missions to Modern Marvels. As scheduled in those guides, English 6 can either be divided over two years, or taught in a single year. Since this is an advanced course, we recommend that students complete English 6 by the end of grade 8 in preparation for high school language arts.
Note: The Teacher’s Manual is necessary at this level as an answer key and for additional help with the lessons. Reduced copies of the pupil pages are included in the Teacher’s Manual. A star indicates when a concept is introduced for the first time. Suggestions for oral review, lesson introductions, and lesson outlines are provided.
