(Ages 12 and up)
There are 5 sections in this volume:
- Reading and Writing Poetry
- Creating Short Stories
- Creating Outlines and Taking Notes
- Creating Research Reports
- Principles of Journalism
As in Volumes 1 and 2, the student has 3 Learning Exercises to complete each week, however the order is somewhat different. The basic pattern is continued with the use of scriptures, service projects, and practicing the principles.
EXAMPLE: Principle #1 in Volume 3 defines poetry, and Principle #2 states: “Metered poems have four basic FOOT PATTERNS.” Examples of four basic foot patterns are presented. The first
Learning exercise instructs the student to choose words from the scriptures which have each of the four foot patterns . On the second day, for Learning Exercise #2, the student practices their recognition of foot patterns in “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and other poems. On day three, the student has fun making up simple sentences and repeating them to a friend emphasizing the foot patterns on unnatural parts of the word, to see if the friend can understand what he/she is saying. (For example, saying “Chewable vitamins are delicious”: Chew-ABLE vi-TAMM-ins ‘r’ DELL-ishus.”)
A “Review to Check Your Knowledge” is presented at the end of each section.
