In this day of “txt-speak,” sound bites, tweets, and keyboards, your teen still needs to be able to read and write with comprehension and God-honoring style.
The ACE English I Curriculum from Accelerated Christian Education has Scripture as its foundation, fully integrating biblical principles, wisdom, and character-building concepts into education. Students move at their own speed through the self-instructional “PACE” workbooks. Quizzes and tests are included.
The ACE English I PACE Set includes all twelve 9th grade English I PACEs (1097-1108). Answer keys sold separately.*
In these PACEs, your student will:
- Learn about the history of the English language
- Practice using the dictionary, thesaurus, concordance, encyclopedia, and the library
- Review outlining
- Write a biographical sketch and answer essay questions
