This Schoolaid Language Series is designed by Schoolaid to complement the Pathway Reader Series by extending in phonics and reading comprehension, grammar and composition.

As with grades 5 and 6, grades 7 and 8 consist of a workbook for each grade that contains parallel contents. The lesson instructions and the teaching suggestions will apply to both grades. The exercises for grade 8 will generally be harder and require more work than grade 7. There are 104 lessons, reviews, and unit tests in each grade, divided into twelve units—though the last two units are combined. (Designed for scheduling 3 lessons per week.) For easy reference, a language Handbook and abbreviated Thesaurus are included at the end of each workbook.

The first two units are review of the basic English grammar rules which were taught before. This puts the students on familiar ground and will give them a good start in working on their own. There are no tests for these first units—everything is review. If the lessons are carefully monitored and graded, the scores will give a true picture of their concept of basic English grammar.

Units 3 - 10 have nine lessons each, including a test at the end of each unit (test pages located in the back of the workbook). In these lessons, the basic English grammar is reinforced and new concepts added. Here also, the emphasis on composition is strengthened, since effective writing is our major goal in teaching English.

Units 11 and 12 are combined to make the last six-week marking period. In them are included the longest composition assignments in the book and also review of the English grammar in preparation for the end-of-year tests.

A booklet of 67 practice sheets with reinforcement exercises is available for each grade.

The hardcover teacher's manual contains general teaching tips, as well as suggestions and answer keys for each lesson. The answers to the practice sheets are at the back.
