Middle School English
I want to post a re-cap of all the books needed just for our middle school English course. Remember that our text is Hake's Grammar and Writing, Grade 6 which you can purchase through either Christian Book Distributors or Rainbow Resource Center. Both offer very good prices and are usually the sites that I go to to order my own curricula. Additionally, we will be reading four books this year. I have scheduled the course in 9 week increments - the first five to six weeks will be devoted to studying grammar and writing with the remaining 3-4 weeks of the nine week period devoted to literary study and analysis. The books that we will be reading (in chronological order) are: 1. The Trojan War (Coolidge) 2. The Phantom Tollbooth (Juster) 3. From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (Konisburg) 4. The Shakespeare Stealer (Blackwood) Optional(I will be reading aloud from this book) 5. Ten Tales from Shakespeare (Charles and Mary Lamb) All of the books that make up the literature portion can be found at Amazon.com.
