Learning Language Arts Through Literature is a complete language arts program for first grade through high school. Using an integrated approach to learning, students learn the skills appropriate for each grade level in the context of real literature. When using Learning Language Arts Through Literature, students learn skills in the context of whole literature. This creates a deeper understanding and generates greater interest in grammar, writing mechanics, vocabulary, spelling, and other language skills.
The Gray Book includes dictation or copying of literature passages from great books your eighth grade student will love. Includes all the language skills: reading, spelling (with suggested lists included), grammar, higher order thinking skills, creative writing, and handwriting in an easy-to-use format. For your convenience, Teacher Notes and answers are right in the margin of the teacher book. The Skills Index provides an easy reference.
