Timberdoodle's review
To utilize the spelling portion of this curriculum you will want one of these Spelling Notebooks for each of your students. The book will cover 2nd-12th grades for that one student. This is not a spelling program by itself; it does require the appropriate curriculum (Pre-A, A, B or C) to be utilized! Over ninety spelling rules are included in the Spelling Notebook, and each page contains a Teacher's Tip that explains that page's rule for the teacher. Each week as part of the student's spelling lesson, he is told to turn to certain pages of the SN containing that week's rule(s), and record his words in the correct column (g says guh; g says juh, etc.). Only one Spelling Notebook is needed per student for all your student's CQLA years as it covers spelling rules for grades two through twelve and is made for long-term use.About Character Quality Language ArtsLanguage Lessons sounds wonderful, and it is. But it may not be for every family. If God has blessed you with a quiverful of children, thank Him and then consider Character Quality Language Arts. Uniquely designed for the parent who is teaching a roomful of multi-grade levels, CQLA is suitable for second- through twelfthgrade students and teaches vocabulary, spelling, grammar, composition, creative writing, poetry, and dictation. As you can imagine, multilevel, all-in-one programs are easier to implement and tend to be more cost-effective. Written by home educators for home educators, CQLA has teacher helps, lesson plans and answer keys-all the grunt work has been done for you. But it is not a program that will overpower you with its beauty, nor is it replete with four-color photos. This very vanilla-looking program is merely a stack of three-hole punched paper, shrink-wrapped for shipping. But if you've never learned not to judge a book by its cover, then now is the time, for this is truly a jewel in disguise.In CQLA, a specific character quality is focused on each month, with all the language arts exercises taken from the Bible, character resources, and biographies. Each weekly lesson at all levels begins in the same manner with a passage of material about the character quality. All lessons for the week come from this passage: copy work, spelling words, grammar concepts, writing assignments, etc. Additionally, all of the editing paragraphs and grammar sentences are about the monthly character quality. So your children are learning more about Godly character while doing language arts.Within each volume are four levels, covering two grade levels. What this means is that the entire family can be studying similar topics at each child's own appropriate level. This makes a teaching parent's job much easier. Each CQLA book is broken down into monthly units, weekly lessons, and even an optional week at the end of each month for those families who must keep strict records of a 180-school-day year. Skills and concepts are introduced, practiced, reviewed, and built upon with higher levels of difficulty from year to year.Some families may decide to skip portions of CQLA; I personally feel the Sequential Spelling program makes more sense, but you may feel otherwise. You do not have to do everything that is outlined. Some children are already spewing out volumes of essays, so requiring even more can put a damper on creativity. But an occasional assignment will give direction and help brush up on essential skills. CQLA does not teach phonics, literature, or how to write a research paper.If you have more than one child working at the same level, this program will be even more of a blessing as you save precious time with the dictation quiz, spelling test, and so forth. In fact, we suggest saving even more time by investing in an inexpensive voice recorder that you, or your child, can prerecord dictation and spelling tests on.Each student worktext is between 700 and 900 pages in length. The extensive pages are for a couple of reasons: (1) the books are work-texts; most of the students' work (except for report writing and dictation quizzes) are done in the books; (2) the lesson plans and user-friendly answer keys are included in the back of each student's worktext.Besides the essential dictionary and thesaurus, if you choose to take advantage of the spelling program, you will want to invest in a copy of The Spelling Notebook for each child. This worktext includes spelling rules and serves as the student's workbook for each week's spelling lesson. One Spelling Notebook per child is used for the entire second through twelfth grades.The CQLA Teacher's Guide, a 300-page book with accompanying CD walking you through a CQLA lesson, explains how the program works and provides a sample lesson, scope, and sequence for CQLA, how to write the various types of reports and essays including timed essays like those required for the SAT, and much more. Most parents will find the Teacher's Guide indispensable. At first glance, CQLA is not a cheap program, but when you consider that you do not need a separate writing, spelling, or grammar text, it works out to be cost-effective. Then, when you factor in the time you save in preparation, CQLA becomes a real bargain. The Red Level pertains to peacemaking, boldness, endurance, joyfulness, initiative, thoroughness, truthfulness, and compassion. The Green Level covers alertness, self-control, gratefulness, humility, meekness, diligence, gentleness, and sincerity. Pre A is for students working at second- and third-grade levels.A for those working at fourth- and fifth-grade levels.B is for those working at sixth- through eighth-grade levels.C is for those working at high-school level.Note From Training For Triumph:Character Quality Language Arts (CQLA) was first developed as a curriculum for families with several children in school at one time. In other words, it was created to be as family-friendly as possible! Thus, there are Teacher's Tips scattered throughout the curriculum to give more insights to the CQLA teacher. (These may be read and used by Level B and C students on their own as well.) There are Teacher's Helps and Answer Keys at the back of each monthly unit for the CQLA teacher to pull out and use as needed (or for Level B and C students to use as their daily schedule and answers). These Teacher's Helps are two pages of five day and four day lesson plans that tell you (or your upper level students) what to do each day. The Answer Keys vary in length according to the number and length of the grammar and structural analysis lessons in each monthly unit.Thus, there are not separate “teacher's guides” for each book. Instead, separate “teacher's guides” for each book are replaced by Teacher Tips throughout, Teacher's Helps at the back of each monthly unit, and Answer Keys at the back of each monthly unit. The CQLA Teacher's Guide is an inexpensive guide to using Character Quality Language Arts. It contains an overview of the entire program, a “how to” section to instruct parents in how to use the program, a book report guide, complete set of grammar cards (all the grammar rules learned in CQLA on “cards” in alphabetical order), the master Checklist Challenge (showing all editing and revising items taught in CQLA from all levels), a Scope and Sequence chart showing what is taught in which unit, aContent Area and Character Quality Overview Chart (also available at this web site) indicating what Bible and character principles each unit covers, a Frequently Asked Questions section (huge!), a guide to citing sources, a guide to coding/highlighting Checklist Challenge revisions in essays, a detailed homophone chart, a sample from a Level B unit, and a CD explaining the program (that correlates with the Level B sample)This entire Teacher's Guide is for the CQLA teacher to learn to use the program. It is not specific to any one level or any one CQLA book. (Those items are in the Teacher's Helps and Answer Keys at the end of each unit.)
