Building on concepts learned in Grammar and Writing 4, students will use Well Ordered Language to take their next steps into English grammar by identifying the parts of a sentence as well as understanding further how words operate in a sentence. Students will actively engage with the concepts in each lesson, using reading, writing, speaking and listening. Physical movement, songs and chants are used to enhance learning.
Students will also use Writing and Rhetoric Book 5: Refutation and Confirmation Program and Writing and Rhetoric Book 6: Commonplace Program to learn critical analysis of written narrative. A step-by-step approach will have students learning to refute and defend parts of a narrative, as well as how to write refutations and confirmations skillfully. This course is particularly good for students who have had little grammar or writing background. Homework will average 2-3 hours per week.
Minimum age of 9 and maximum age of 12 on the first day of class.
