Grade 8 Complete Kit

/images/f/complete-grade-kit.jpg
In grade 8, your child will read literature selections from other cultures and evaluate them from a biblical worldview in Excursions in Literature. He or she will learn about American history in The American Republic and study about the earth, minerals, and water in Earth Science. In Writing & Grammar 8, your child will hone his or her writing skills with a business letter, a news story, a character profile, and more. Finally, Pre-Algebra will prepare your child for advanced algebra courses.

The BJU Press curriculum aims to teach for understanding and to develop your child’s critical thinking skills with high-interest materials that also encourage a love of learning. Each subject is presented in light of biblical truth in order to encourage the development of a biblical worldview.

When you purchase a complete kit, you receive all of the essential student and teacher materials for American Republic, Excursions in Literature, Writing & Grammar 8, Earth Science, and Pre-Algebra—26 products total. Not only do you save money but you also gain the strength of a unified curriculum. Though choosing textbooks from many sources may seem to provide flexibility and customization, using a complete curriculum of BJU Press materials lets students focus on learning rather than on navigating yet another perspective. BJU Press textbooks provide consistency in scriptural and academic standards—every subject, every grade. And our teacher’s editions and ancillary materials allow for generous flexibility and customization within a unified biblical worldview.

Please note that this kit is not compatible with Distance Learning.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by American Republic I purchased the 3rd edition because the 2nd edition was no longer available and have found discrepancies. Most of the questions are the same however, some were not. I am thankful that I was able to adjust some questions so, that I didn't have to buy all new books, which an one income family of four cannot afford. September 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Enjoyable, great to teach The presentation of the class, the organization, everything I need is there. September 14, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Difficulty of material Due to the difficulty of the problems, I have to give help. Some of the problems are way too difficult for an 8th grade student. But I love the way the Lord is included in the material. August 30, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Excellent information ~ horrid design for textbook While the quality of the content is excellent...the softcover books are absurd. The cost the the text would be acceptable, if not excellent EXCEPT for the fact that they will not endure the beatings that they will take from students throwing them into book bags and lockers. These books will have to be replaced within 2, maybe 3 years. Very disappointed with them. August 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I would recommend this product I have used Bob Jones for seven years. I love the teachers edition. I would recommend this product. July 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Outstanding worlview! I am just beginning to tap into the resources but am impressed by the worldview. I am a history teacher with a love for earth science (reminds me some of geography) teaching earth science for the first time. I am also overwhelmed with all I have to learn. If the students do no more than read the textbook they will be well on their way to beginning an excellent earth science education. July 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I always look forward to seeing what is new in these books. I love the fact that I am free to add, delete, and just use as is. Thank you for all the resources, too. April 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by American Republic is a great eight grade history curriculum! I have used BJU Press subject kits for eight years and would never make a change. They are a solid biblically based curriculum. American Republic goes in-depth about our American history! Compared to other books I have looked at, it has no comparison. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone wanting to homeschool! April 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Text Overall My students have liked this curriculum; however, it has been difficult for them to grasp on their own. The students have been challenged and I am hopeful it has prepared them for Algebra 1. I have two 8th graders. One was able to teach herself until she got to chapter 6. The other needed a lot of assistance starting with chapter 4. They believe things could be explained better in the book and there should be consistency in the vocabulary used in the text and on the tests. It has been frustrating having the terms changed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tool. I've learned things that I didn't know before about some presidents. Great Biblical integration. I am enjoying using this book. There are great anecdotes that are in my book that the students don't have. I have learned a lot of different things about our former presidents. I like how the content shows that history does, indeed, repeat itself when a nation turns from God. I also like how the chapters are laid out including the objectives. That makes my teaching much more focused and on target. February 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It is thorough and congruent with the chapter material. My daughter benefited from the test material as it covered the chapter information very well and thoroughly. We wish the tests and the answer keys were part of the 8th grade kit. Thank you for your superb work in making excellent homeschool material. February 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid, God focused curriculum My son used this text for 7th grade. He is currently using a rigorous Algebra 1 text in 8th grade. I feel BJU pre-algebra text prepared him properly for Algebra 1. I appreciate how BJU Press always finds a way to give glory to our God throughout the text. My daughter who is currently in 7th grade is now using this pre-algebra text. Though math may not come as easily to her as her brother, she has been successful with it and will also be prepared for the same Algebra text as her brother. Oh, and both their national standardized tests in math has been in the high 90 percentiles...98% usually...not bragging...just using a solid curriculum. February 11, 2013
