As your child progresses through his or her English/language arts education, you may find yourself creating more focused lesson plans. When your child was in the elementary school years, he or she needed to learn the foundational elements of English/language arts by studying the subject broadly. However, by the time your child enters the middle and high school years, he or she is ready for more challenging work.
You can teach your child specific skills that round out and develop his or her English/language arts knowledge by selecting the Prentice Hall Writing and Grammar curriculum for homeschooling. This program delves deep into Writing and Grammar, helping your child become proficient in those subjects. With plenty of hands-on activities, Prentice Hall Writing and Grammar is an engaging program that will simultaneously solidify your child's knowledge and help you teach new material well.
Each Grade of Prentice Hall Writing and Grammar is broken into three chapters: Writing, Grammar Usage and Mechanics, and Academic and Workplace Skills. Each Grade gets incrementally more difficult and introduces new concepts. The Writing portion helps your child develop his or her ability to compose arguments and express him or herself. The Grammar Usage and Mechanics chapter builds your child's understanding of the way the English language is structured. Finally, the Academic and Workplace Skills chapter ensures your child has the abilities he or she will need in college and beyond.
Prentice Hall Writing and Grammar: Grade 11 is one of the more pointed and focused English/language arts programs. These are the goals your child should work toward in Grade 11:
- Turn in writing with minimal to no grammar errors.
- Recognize grammar mistakes in his or her own writing.
- Establish and maintain a tone appropriate for whatever type of writing he or she does.
- Articulate thesis in all parts of essay writing.
