If they have had a little experience with literature guides and high school-level writing, Intermediate Guide to High School Literature & Composition: Part B is a great way to continue!
This one-semester guide (consider starting your year with Intermediate Guide to High School Literature & Composition: Part A – but you don’t HAVE to use the guides in order) will extend your high schooler’s language arts skills.
Intermediate Guide to High School Literature & Composition is a downloadable text that will inform and inspire your homeschooling high schoolers without boring or burdening them with busywork.
7Sisters Literature Guides philosophy is “don’t kill the book” AND make it adaptable (so a variety of teens in your home, from average to honors, can earn the credit level they need for their transcript).
The guides contain brief background information, important literature terms and themes, vocabulary, comprehension and critical thinking questions.
Composition Guides contain concise 15 minute daily lessons that teach half of the writing skills needed in second year high school (or advanced 9th graders). The lessons contain information and instruction and assignments.
Rubrics for editing and grading are included. (Answer Keys are included in the price of the text but downloaded as a separate .pdf file for homeschool parents’ convenience.)
Both the Literature Guides and the Composition Guides are excellent for self-instruction and are favorites with co-op classes.
Included in Intermediate Guide to High School Literature & Composition Part B are 2 composition guides and 6 literature guides (these are also found individually in the 7Sisters store):
This 45-page downloadable pdf workbook by Vicki Tillman, is easy to use so a student could follow the process even if he or she does not have a teacher who is experienced in writing poetry.The guide is written to be used over a six-week period. This e-text is written in a friendly manner, conversational in tone, and can be used independently or with a co-op. Poetry is intimidating to many students and to some homeschooling parents as well, but poetic language and expression become accessible and fun with Vicki’s poetry writing curriculum guides. Explore poetry and give your homeschooling teen an opportunity for fun and growth in word power!
Many homeschoolers will find that when they start college, their science and social science courses require writing in APA-style. It is a VERY different format from the fun and familiar MLA-style research paper. It can be overwhelming! 7 Sisters Introductory Guide to APA Research Paper Writing, a downloadable .pdf text, can help by guiding your homeschooler through a step-by-step process of learning how to handle the format and think like an APA-writer!
