Beyond the Book Report is AG's middle school language arts curriculum. Middle school is a special time. These kids are not just short high schoolers or tall elementary students. This is the time to cover all those skills and knowledge items and get your student prepared for high school literature and writing.

Beyond the Book Report is designed to pair with Analytical Grammar to provide a seamless, full-coverage, meaty, productful middle school language arts course that doesn't take up your whole day. By using AG and BBR together (just add the vocab of your choice!), you can teach middle school language arts in about an hour a day.

BBR is broken up into three seasons. A three-year plan is appropriate for 6th or 7th graders.

What you will receive when you purchase BBR is a teacher packet with examples and reference material and a DVD which will contain the video instructions, video lectures, and PDF rubrics, activities, and assignments. You'll simply watch the videos and print out everything you need to teach subustantive units on literary terms and analysis, newspaper writing, poetry, drama, public speaking, essays and research papers. BBR can be reused for anyone in your immediate family.
