Grammar Galaxy: Supernova (Volume 7) is a complete language arts curriculum for middle schoolers or students who have completed Nova or its equivalent.
Short, comical stories teach concepts in a memorable way. Students discover the havoc that ensues when the evil Gremlin tampers with the English language. Satire get mistaken for news. Dependent clauses and phrases demand their independence. Citizens are asked to stop writing because planet Composition is running out of storage space. The royal English children invite students to become fellow grammar guardians in order to save the galaxy from crises like these.
Students read one of the mysteries. Vocabulary words are defined in the text. Discussion questions follow each lesson to check for understanding. The Supernova Mission Manual (workbook) enables guardians to complete short, enjoyable missions to reinforce the concepts. Optional writing projects are perfect for students who are ready for more advanced composition assignments.
Grammar Galaxy Supernova, the seventh in a series of language arts texts for first to eighth graders, teaches:
- literary concepts
- spelling strategies
- writing and
- public speaking
Supernova is an excellent, expanded review for middle school students of concepts taught in Yellow Star, Red Star, and Blue Star.
