Language Lessons for a Living Education 7
For Ages 12-13
Ignite a love for communication with Master Books’ award winning homeschool curriculum: Language Lessons for a Living Education. Language Lessons Level 7 is an engaging, full-color course helping students to learn and practice foundational communication skills through essays, summaries, and oral presentations. Successful communication is achieved as students learn new grammar and punctuation rules throughout the writing process. The study of etiquette, verbal and non-verbal communication, and worldview sets this course above the rest.
Level 7 is equivalent to a seventh-grade level and moves the student toward mastery of reading and grammar, as well as the mechanics of communication and writing. Lessons are scheduled for five days a week and can be accomplished in approximately 40 minutes.
Language Lessons for a Living Education is a top ranked homeschool curriculum series, uniquely effective in teaching communication skills and the Gospel. In Language Lessons Level 7, students will be challenged to grow in areas of communication through sentence writing, paragraph assignments, an essay assignment, etiquette practice, and facial expressions and body language.
Written for 7th grade level students, this language arts curriculum gives an overview of important grammar and punctuation rules. Students interact with those rules by recognizing them in sample sentences and applying them in their own creative writing. Lessons are designed to be personal and to challenge students to think deeply about their communication skills, and encourage them to stretch and grow in how they communicate with God and others.
