-WORLD HISTORY is at the forefront this year. World History isn't any fun if it's not studied using pictures, maps, and activities. That's why we use the finest modular, mid-level, social studies program we could find. This two book, hard cover, full-color series is, well, simply incredible. Our students really, really, like this series. This year all the Ancient World will be studied; from the beginnings of mankind through to the middle ages. The second text picks up where the first one ends and takes students from the Middle Ages to Modern Day. An awesome course! Oh - and... and... an accompanying website comes with this series - an Interactive website with biographies, a skills tutor, world passport, news tracker, video presentations, and much more.
An Answer Key comes with each text.
-An ENGLISH GRAMMAR course in a colorful worktext format - one that your student is able to write-in - is included as part of the Language Arts Course selection which covers all forms of Grammar, Usage and Mechanics. WRITING/COMPOSITION is included as part of the student work text. This course has just been updated whereby the publisher has added 2 new middle level programs. it's been so well received over the years for grades 3-6 that we just couldn't assemble a middle level package without including it.
There's a portion in the rear of the workbook which contains an entire handbook of language rules and skills as well as another separate part containing perforated pages for the parent/teacher to pull out and assign as extra work if there's a topic wherein the student could use a little more repetition to master that topic.
An Answer Key for this course is in this package also.
