Equip Intentional and Effective Communicators
Help your students become intentional and effective communicators by giving them systematic grammar instruction with direct application to speaking and writing. Writing & Grammar 9 (4th edition) weaves grammar instruction and writing practice together throughout so students have opportunities to connect the skills they’re learning to the texts they’re writing. Biblical worldview themes and questions help students learn to apply a biblical view of identity, logic, integrity, and judgment to intentional communication. This course uses thematic units to give students a variety of mentor texts that guide them in composing small and large writing assignments in various genres.
