Customized English: Literature & Composition, Vocabulary, Grammar, & Speech
English: Literature & Composition is completely customized and runs across all subjects. You can Customize with reading and literature along with writing and composition as well as spelling and vocabulary as needed and English and grammar. I wanted my kids to be able to write a strong paragraph and papers about anything. They need to be familiar with different types of writing and the audience they appeal to. After all, writing is communicating something.
Rather than focusing on writings as a summary, the student thoughtfully reflects on the reading and makes connections, evaluations, and conclusions. Luckily there are a lot of creative ways to get here and high school is a great time when students have opinions, so there are no shortages of ideas! We continue to develop writing so that a variety of styles can be used successfully and also show an understanding of the requirements for each style. This will be college-prep writing where students will use self-evaluation skills to improve their writing. We are spiraling around yet again and repeating all the middle school composition with some longer length, adding more research, and continuing different writing experiences across the subjects. Keep in mind that high school composition is not just reading and answering comprehension questions. Review this with your student as needed.
