Climbing to Good English
By: SchoolAid
Climbing to Good English Levels 5 and 6 are designed to run parallel in a mixed grade situation if needed with three English classes per week. Use the Practice Sheets the other two days per week, or as needed. Both grades study and discuss the same concepts at the same time. However, sixth grade is generally on a harder level and often has more work. The teacher guide gives clear instructions.

Each unit begins with a composition lesson which encompasses listening, reading, evaluation, taking notes, organizing, building vocabulary, explaining, writing, editing, and rewriting, followed with lessons on grammar, mechanics and word usage.

The students are expected to help themselves do much of the work independently without much teacher help.
