Beyond the Book Report
Beyond the Book Report is our middle/early high school language arts curriculum. Middle school is a special time. These kids are not just short high schoolers or tall elementary students. This is the time to cover all those skills and knowledge items and get your student prepared for high school literature and writing.
Beyond the Book Report covers literary analysis, journalism, poetry, drama, essays, oral reports, and research papers. This program is designed to pair with Analytical Grammar to provide a seamless, full-coverage language arts course that is easy to understand and use, while not requiring a whole day.
Beyond the Book Report covers literary analysis, journalism, poetry, drama, essays, oral reports, and research papers. The student video lectures and printables are on a computer DVD; the teacher schedule, examples, and glossary of terms come as a three-hole-punched packet. The program is flexible; you can use the modules with whatever works of fiction you and your children choose. No more boring book reports that simply get words on papers. BBR uses the idea of a “book report” to teach all the skills and knowledge necessary to have students fully prepared for high school level work.
Beyond the Book Report is designed to pair with Analytical Grammar to provide a seamless, full-coverage, meaty, productive middle school language arts course that doesn’t take up your whole day. By using AG and BBR together (just add the vocab of your choice!), you can teach middle school language arts in about an hour a day.
