Developed to follow the classic Saxon model of incremental development and continuous review, Hake's Grammar and Writing is a comprehensive English language curriculum that incorporates grammar, writing, spelling, and vocabulary development. Core-knowledge content, such as history, geography, science, and literature, is also embedded in the curriculum.
Topics covered in this Grade 7 curriculum include: types of sentences, capitalization, subject and predicate, action verbs, irregular plural nouns, linking verbs, phrases and clauses, abbreviations, appositives, diagramming, italics, and more.
Each lesson in this text contains instruction with examples, a set of practice questions, and a review set, which includes previous material. Weekly dictations for practice in spelling and punctuation. Also, suggested journal topics for student journals.
This 2nd Edition has been revised and updated, and now meets Common Core Standards for Language and Writing.
