Beyond the Book Report Bundle[RESOURCE REMOVED]

Description

Beyond the Book Report is our middle/early high school language arts curriculum. Oh, 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. This is a bundle price for all three seasons of Beyond the Book Report. See full description of the individual seasons for details. Who is it for? 6th-12th grade Homeschoolers Educators Beyond the Book Report is our middle/early high school language arts curriculum. Oh, 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 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.

This is the bundle set of all three seasons of Beyond the Book Report.

What you will receive when you purchase BBR is a teacher packet with a step-by-step teaching schedule and guide, examples of all the student work, and a glossary of terms and a DVD which will contain the video instructions, video lectures, and PDF rubrics, activities, and assignments. You’ll simply watch the videos and print out everything you need to teach substantive units on literary terms and analysis, newspaper writing, poetry, drama, public speaking, essays and research papers. BBR can be reused for anyone in your immediate family.
