By providing your teen an excellent education in language studies, you are giving him vital skills for his life’s calling. The benefits of learning to communicate well cannot be overstated! The Abeka English program is known for excellence in its systematic study of grammar and composition, spelling and word usage, and inspiring literature.
· Literature—Notable works like Hamlet, Up from Slavery, and Great Expectations teach us beautifully about life and mankind. Thoughtful class discussion and essay questions over thematic elements such as humility, justice, faith, and love help your teen approve thoughts that are excellent—whatsoever is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report!
· Grammar and Composition—Good writing and proper grammar take practice! Your teen will work on perfecting paragraph unity and coherence and improving sentences in his continued efforts to write clear and concise compositions.
· Vocabulary, Spelling, Poetry—The 20 weekly spelling words and 10 weekly vocabulary words from the literature will take your teen one step closer to perfecting his communication skills. Along with his video classmates, he will memorize 10 inspiring pieces, including Portia’s famous speech from The Merchant of Venice, “The Quality of Mercy.”
Your teen will gain lifelong benefits from these lessons as he is challenged to grow in knowledge and skills by a master teacher, who provides clear explanations. As your teen becomes more acquainted with his video classmates, he will feel as though he is a part of the class. The teacher will even pause to allow “students watching” opportunity to participate.
The prerecorded online video streaming or DVDs give you the flexibility to set your own daily schedule. The video lease provides a full 12 months to complete the 170 lessons and 6 months to complete 85 lessons for a semester. You also have the option to purchase either the Video & Books or Video (for those who may already have some of the materials and wish to purchase individual items separately). A video manual is provided with either option to help you stay on track with the video teacher. Also, record-keeping progress reports are included with both options to document your child’s progress through the school year.
Abeka Academy offers two different program types to meet your family’s specific needs. The Unaccredited program allows for more course flexibility and relies solely on the home teacher to keep track of student records. For an additional charge, the Accredited program provides official report cards and standardized testing as well as reliable record-keeping by our academic team. With either option, academic assistance is accessible through email, live chat, or phone. Conveniently view our Homeschool Agreement before purchase to understand the requirements.
