EASY GRAMMAR IN HIGH SCHOOL

For our first year of high school, I knew I wanted to piece together a language arts credit instead of purchasing something from a big box. We needed some high school grammar, vocabulary, and writing. This year, we are basing our language arts credits almost entirely around what literature we’re reading. We’re learning about different…
