Building Securely: English 7 is an advanced grammar course with 125 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 parts of speech are covered. Plans include lessons on upper-level grammar constructs, proofreading, story development, and note-taking. Paragraph construction, outlining, oral reports, descriptive writing, character sketches, book reviews, conflict and style, and poetic devices are taught at deeper levels.
Since this is an advanced text, English 7 is scheduled as part of high school language arts in World Geography and World History. It is divided over two years in those guides.
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.
