As students begin taking over their own education in middle school, it can be a bit overwhelming for both parent and student. By tying literature, grammar, and writing into one course, the Ron Paul Curriculum makes an often difficult middle school course enjoyable for students.
The English 6 syllabus allows time for students to enjoy reading literature, by alternating the focus between reading and writing throughout the year. Your student will also be able to see a systematic growth in vocabulary, grammar, and writing skills.
