Rated 4 out of 5 by Anndelion different format than their 6th grade English
I am math strong and language weak and love the way they teach writing assignments, with one chapter in grammar and the next in writing. Though not as intense as the ABeka language curriculum I enjoyed using the BJU 6TH GRADE ENGLISH more. The reasons were that each lesson was in order and labeled so I can tell what lesson it was. I also liked how the lessons were clearly described for the student to read. A self motivated student can learn without much help from mom. I have looked through the 7TH GRADE books and the lessons are not labeled on the pages and aren't located in order because the lessons glean from other chapters at times. However, there is a suggested teaching schedule in the back of the teacher's edition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Megan4275 Great solid language and writing text.
Grade 7 Writing and Grammar has great qualities. It is challenging but can be self taught because it breaks language down into small pieces. My child has improved his language skills in speaking and writing through this text. The only thing I would add is possibly more explanation for the answer book. Sometimes I cannot explain to my child why the answer is what it is. I realize adding more explanation would probably raise the price and I'm not sure if it would be worth it. Overall my child can understand the language concepts and has shown improvement in applying what he has learned. I know for sure that having the high caliber of this text throughout highschool will aid my child greatly when going to college and beyond.

The BJU press program is easy to use. I had tried others that were less "laid out" for me, the teacher and they don't compare. Flip to the back of the students book for chapter review. Easy to find answers in the teachers book, and in the back of the teachers book, you'll find answers to sentence diagramming, and a suggested lay out for the year. I will definitely continue to use BJU press in the future.

My husband and I have been homeschooling for 18 years. We began our homeschool using the BJU material and have never been disappointed with anything we've purchased over the years. Their curriculum is top-notch, and we love the Biblical integration in each and every subject. We have never seen any questionable stories or excerpts being used in relation to the subject matter being taught. This has given us peace of mind to know that our children were not being given garbage to have to process through. English 7 is no exception. Your child will receive a quality education using this textbook! A+

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mom10 Good content
This book is totally different from the elementary books. The elementary books were very easy to use and flowed together, easily, with the teacher's edition. I do, however, like that the lessons could be broken up into two semesters or one. Overall the content is very good.

I love BJU's curriculum, especially their Grammar. It is so easy to understand even for those like me who have always struggled with grammar. I thought that I was going to have a hard time teaching my children grammar, but BJU made eveything so easy and understandable. I love the fact that they have plenty of examples before the guided or independent practice, and the fact that they also have concept reinforcements aside from the Chapter Review. They break it down for you. In the process of teaching my children, I have learned so much myself. Thank you BJU! I totally recommend this curriculum!

I like the textbook. It is well written. I would like to see the quizzes listed over the brown box in the teacher's book. Also the transition from 6th to 7th could be made a little easier.
