How to teach your children proper English - The second volume of Emma Serl's language series makes it easy to teach during the often difficult intermediate years.
Emma Serl's Intermediate Language Lessons is designed for teaching 4th, 5th and 6th grades. As she does with the first volume of her series, Primary Language Lessons, Miss Serl uses material that captures the interest of children. You find the writings of Louisa May Alcott, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alfred Tennyson, Helen Hunt Jackson, Percy Bysshe Shelley, George MacDonald, Edward Everett Hale, William Shakespeare and other outstanding authors. This reader includes imaginative work projects that reinforce the lessons and direct the child to independent research on topics as varied as coal and birds' nests.
As comprehensive a teaching tool as you could hope for . . .
Intermediate Language Lessons includes a broad range of lessons that encompass every aspect of teaching English including:
Literature and Poetry Studies, Letter Writing, Creating an Outline, Grammar and Word Usage, All Forms of Composition, Memorization and Oral Presentation, Debating, Dictation.
BONUS! Emma Serl uses prominent paintings to help instruct children in observation and discussion. Result: a minicourse in art appreciation as well as English.
