    A heavy-duty (and thoroughly Christian) writing course, recently revised. Use this course by itself or with it's companion volume, Literary Analysis: An Introduction (see Reading section) for a complete English course. The author guides the student through various types of writing experiences by supplying ample explanation, a model (generally written by himself or one of his children), and plenty of practice! Each of the 35 lessons (formerly 26) should take approximately a week to complete. Students read through the lesson on the first day. Each lesson focuses on a specific type of writing and highlights a Writing Style skill. Warm-up essay subjects are provided for each day. These are intended to be short (one page or less) and take no more than a half hour to complete. Journal Writing (really, Bible study and reflection) is also intended to be done daily; the author suggests journaling through 1 Kings. A form for this is included in the book's appendix. It is also expected that the student will read 35-50 pages in a good book each night, creating an index card vocabulary deck as he goes. To help in selecting appropriate literature, the author has included a list of books that should be read before graduating from high school. Because of the extemporaneous speech expected at the end of lesson 15, the student should also be keeping an "extemporaneous file" to prepare. During the week, the student will also be working on the major writing assignment for the lesson which corresponds to the writing skill being taught. Specific instructions for these (length and requirements) are given at the end of each lesson. Types of writing include: description, eyewitness account, summary report, firsthand experience, character profile, historical profile, analysis, synthesis, evaluation, literary analysis, case/effect, compare/contrast, problem/solution, explanatory, and a major research paper. This last writing project covers a ten-week span and lessons focus on the skills and steps involved in producing a first-rate research paper from inception to conclusion. In addition to written assignments and the extemporaneous speech (since this is a writing and speaking course), in lesson 6 assignments include the presentation of an original oratory. As mentioned before, each week's lesson includes study of a writing style technique or tip. These include: focus, combining sentences, expanding sentences, writing complete sentences, clear sentences, transitions, choosing the right word, quotation marks, and footnotes/endnotes. A very thorough (and demanding) course for your middle grader!

    A Teacher's Edition is also available to help you get the most out of this program. For each lesson in the student book, it provides teaching plans, assessment goals, and evaluation tools to determine your student's level of progress. The course is flexible enough to adjust the pacing for any student, but plans designed specifically for special needs learners to gain the maximum possible benefit from the study are included. For each weekly lesson, daily suggested activities and assignments are given. Additional teaching tips and activity ideas are included in the book and in the appendices. A DVD is also included with the Teacher Edition, which features the author, James Stobaugh, giving extra insights and encouragement. The Teacher's Edition is very valuable in helping you get the most out of the student book and this great course.

    Dr. James Stobaugh offers this great reading resource for use in your homeschool or classroom. Originally written in 2004, this book was revised in 2012 and is now published by Master Books. Fifty classics are presented alphabetically in the first half of the book, and for each one there is a short description, objective and discussion questions, and suggested vocabulary words. The latter half of the book includes "Aids for the Teacher," which includes answers for the objective and discussion questions, general sources, the book list arranged by appropriateness for younger and more mature readers, a glossary of literary terms, and short biographies of each author.

    Use this book to enhance and expand the understanding of some of the classics, from Agamemnon to Wuthering Heights. 293 pgs., p/b. ~ Donna
