The Materials for English 6
English 6 emphasizes traditional grammar as well as practice with essential reference skills. The elementary English materials provide a step-by-step introduction to the Writing Process for eight different types of writing assignments, such as personal narratives, newspaper editorials, historical fiction, and limericks. The student worktext provides guided practice, independent practice, chapter reviews, and cumulative reviews to reinforce key grammar concepts. Located at the back of the worktext, the Writing Handbook contains a thesaurus and writing models, and the Grammar Handbook contains a list of abbreviations, prepositions, homophones, and sentence diagramming models.
The Teacher's Edition provides easy instructions to teach grammar for understanding and to guide the teaching of writing using the Writing Process. Students plan, draft, revise, proofread, and publish eight different types of writing: compare-contrast essays, newspaper editorials, personal narratives, instructions, historical fiction, limericks, free verse, research reports, and cover letters for submitting work to a publisher. Rubrics are provided to help the teacher evaluate each type of writing. The Teacher's Edition contains reduced student pages and Extra Practice pages (with answers) as well as Keeping Up transparency masters (with answers) to quickly review grammar during the writing chapters. It's a thorough presentation of English instruction with a balance of grammar study and writing practice.
Includes enough tests for 5 students. This Test packet includes five tests for each chapter, as well as suggestions for grading. Each test includes application of the concepts and skills from the chapter. Tests for the writing chapters may include the use of graphic organizers and proofreading skills.
