The first in our four-year English series for middle school students, English A is a comprehensive course that will cover basic grammar, the foundations of writing, and literature from the time period of the Ancients, including Greek mythology and Aesop’s fables. This well-rounded course will introduce foundations of good writing and beginning stylistic techniques. Using exciting literature of the time period, we will delve into literary analysis, as well as get our feet wet in the ancient writings that still influence our culture today. Through online assessments, writing, discussion and projects, your student will experience a full year of English that can stand alone but also pairs well with The Mystery of History I. Due to the interactive nature of this course, a microphone is required and a camera is strongly recommended for all students.
