Writing and Grammar
October 3, 2016
I was really disappointed with this curriculum. I have used the Bob Jones Grammar and Writing for previous grades in our homeschool. My kids and I have enjoyed the program. Unfortunately, the 7th grade curriculum is just not a good match for our family. There is hardly any information in the teacher's edition. It is basically used for correcting the students work. That is a LOT of money to charge for answers. In previous editions, there was an entire lesson for the teacher to lead the students through. My kids learned a lot from those teacher led times and enjoyed the interaction we had. Now, they read a short paragraph instructing them (poorly and with little information) and are required to complete the book work. It is boring for my kids. There is no meat to this curriculum. If you have students that can read a paragraph and figure out a lesson independently than this may work for you. If you have students that are still learning and need some instruction before being turned loose to do their written work, this is a frustrating book to use.
I have used BJU Grammar grade 3,4,5,6, and now 7, that's 5 years. What I like about Grammar 7 is that the composition/writing skills is at the end of the book instead of every other chapter. This gives the book a much better flow. With the other grades I would skip the composition/writing chapters until I finished the other chapters and then return to the compo./writing, it was such a hassle, but I made it work. I'm very pleased with the flow of the book now. THANK YOU BJU PRESS for the much needed improvement. I wish the price of the student book and teacher's manual was a bit more reasonable.
