Student Worktext (eWorktext Available)
The student worktext combines grammar and writing practice in one student-friendly, consumable book. Students will find age-appropriate illustrations that enhance both the writing and grammar chapters. The worktext provides writing models, teacher-guided practice, independent practice, chapter reviews, and cumulative reviews. The handbook in the back of the worktext provides a thesaurus and information about English grammar conventions.
The teacher edition provides a variety of teaching strategies organized around each phase of the teaching cycle—Engage, Instruct, Apply, and Assess. Seven chapters focus on standard English conventions, and one chapter focuses on study and research skills. Six writing chapters follow the fivestep writing process to guide students in writing poetry, narratives, opinion pieces, and informational texts. Teaching guides help teachers direct lesson activities that strengthen skills in visual and digital literacy, critical thinking, and collaboration.
