Student Textbook chapters open with a "diagnostic preview" that tests students' knowledge of the concept. Lessons are very concise, providing students with a brief explanation and examples, followed immediately with exercises. The sidebars provide links to where the same concept may be explained elsewhere in the book, or provide connections to computers, literature, basic skills, tips & tricks, and other helpful information. Charts are used throughout the text to set off and clarify important terms and concepts. Each chapter ends with a chapter review and writing application.
This grade 8 curriculum covers compound subjects, collective nouns, personal pronouns, proper adjectives, linking verbs, direct and indirect objects, predicate nominatives, the participle phrase, subordinate clauses, irregular verbs, contractions, and other grade-appropriate concepts.
