Texting, typing, and telephoning, despite the advent of “txt-speak,” still require polished language skills for effective, God-honoring communications!
English I: Language Skills from Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum prepares students for post-high school studies and careers that require strong communication skills. Paradigm high school English is a seamless program that begins with English I and continues through English IV. Every grade level (I through IV) focuses on interpretation and development of writing styles, character, and wisdom.
English I: Language Skills builds on skills learned in English Grammar Skills (EGS, eighth grade) by reviewing the parts of speech and their application.
Students read and evaluate literature carefully selected to expose students to noble ideals and writing techniques that equip them to craft strong sentences and paragraphs, becoming effective wordsmiths skilled in expressing high ideals and beliefs through:
- Research papers
Students gain experience writing pieces that inform, entertain, persuade, and challenge.
Students address literary concepts such as:
- Cause and effect
Paradigm English courses use the vignette approach to inspire students towards noble character and life purpose. Students enhance vocabulary, build moral character, and gain insight on how to make wise life choices.
