The Student Text is well laid out, including a summary of notes from the lesson, samples of effective writing, samples of ineffective writing, and clear rubrics to aid the parent in grading the student's work. Lessons are broken down into incremental steps, keeping the writing process from becoming intimidating. There is no link to the interior of the high school student texts yet, however here is a glimpse at the interior of a grade 8 lesson so that you can get an idea of what a student text looks like. (Keep in mind this is two grades below the grade we will be scheduling.) Link to PDF

The selections within the Fundamentals of Literature text in this course are designed to convey and teach literature's foundational elements of conflict, character, theme, point of view, structure, and tone. Literary criticism is also introduced and students are encouraged to read and analyze literature in light of a Christian worldview. Reading selections are not necessarily Christian, since true interpretation and evaluation can only be taught through studying pieces written from more than one perspective. The literature selections are delivered in an attractive new format accompanied by rich illustrations, author biographies, and application questions that promote critical thinking skills. The full-length drama "Cyrano De Bergerac" is included for study as part of the student text.

In the World Geography guide, units of the BJU literature text will alternate with the reading of full-length novels/plays. Since the BJU text is meant to be a one-semester text, with the other semester devoted to composition and grammar, adding full-length classic novels will complement the BJU text well. Using the BJU literature text to teach literary skills will also give students the freedom to read the scheduled full-length novels/plays in a more Charlotte Mason fashion, with oral and written narrations and Common Place Book entries as follow-ups, rather than needing to use novel guides.
VideoText Algebra is an interactive, video-based program that teaches Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Algebra II in an integrated manner. Due to the integrated manner in which VideoText teaches algebra, once you begin VideoText it is best to complete the course because all modules work together to teach Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Algebra II. Therefore, to claim credit for both Algebra I and Algebra II all modules must be completed. All students must begin VideoText Algebra with Module A, regardless of previous math experience with Algebra.
For 66th and 67th graders, it will be important to make sure to earn needed credits in specific types of literature (. American and British) as required by your state, or by the entrance requirements of the college your child will be attending. Our plan at this point is to study Fundamentals of Literature in the Geography guide, World Literature in the World History Guide, American Literature in the American history guide, and British Literature in the final high school guide.
