Language Arts 6


 Course ID

Language Arts 6 enables students to master previously learned skills in more complex reading selections and written work. Students learn strategies to analyze and respond to different literature genres. Literature is studied from a Christian perspective and related to biblical principles, providing opportunities for discussion in life application.

Throughout the year, emphasis is on writing, and students become familiar with the writing process, from note taking and drafting to editing, proofreading, and publishing a final copy. Students adhere to the conventions of accepted English. Studying Latin roots helps students better comprehend vocabulary. The study of grammar focuses on proper use of prepositional phrases, nouns, and verbs, as well as capitalization and punctuation rules.

Students write in journals and keep track of outside reading on a weekly basis. Opportunities for public speaking give students a chance to develop this skill in a safe environment.
