Visual Manna's Teaching English Through Art
Although billed as a supplement to reinforce and extend concepts from a regular English program, there’s plenty of “meat” here to use this book as your core English for a year, or to use in place of your regular program once a week or so. It would be a good break from the rut of a traditional program, and you could use it with all of your children at one time. Since the author is an English teacher, the book is educationally sound and quite broad in its scope. If covers all of the essential strands of writing, plus a smattering of mechanics. Sections are as follows: Describing Words – Enhancing Vocabulary; Building Good Writing – Sentence Structure - Paragraphs; Creating a Story – Story Elements; Technical Writing – Communicating Ideas; Poetry; Using Reference Materials; Everything Else - Important Miscellaneous; Paragraph Ideas.
