The Seventh Grade Teacher Planner is the perfect student supplement to the Seventh Grade Syllabus. It contains daily lesson plans for each subject in an easy-to-read format addressed to the student. The student will need to refer back to the syllabus on occasion for particular directions. Please Note: The Teacher Planner uses the standard texts found in the Mother of Divine Grace Syllabus. Where the syllabus offers a choice of texts, the Teacher Planner uses the text that most families in the Mother of Divine Grace program use (noted below in bold).
In Religion we use the Acts of the Apostles, which the student studies in detail by a careful reading and discussion of each chapter. This text is supplemented by, The Story of the Church, Lives of the Saints, The Bronze Bow, and The Story of the Church to provide an in depth study of the early Church. In Mathematics we use Math 87 (Saxon) which provides a bridge between basic arithmetic and algebra. In Grammar we use Basic Language Principles (Wilson) which is a wonderful book that introduces the structure of basic Latin and reinforces English grammar. In addition we recommend using the Editor in Chief Books B & C to help with editing skills. In Spelling we use Wordly Wise 4 which helps to build the student’s vocabulary and strengthen his spelling skills. In Poetry we continue to use The Harp and Laurel Wreath along with several Shakespeare plays for selections of poetry to memorize. In Science we use Concepts and Challenges in Science 2 (B) which provides additional practice in the study of dialectic and continues the study of basic principles begun earlier. In History we use Old World and America as a basic text to cover Greek and Roman History. This course is supplemented with a variety of books on Greece & Rome. The history course is nicely correlated with the religion course. We also provide the student with a list of historical fiction to complement the study of history through literature. In Geography, which is correlated with history, we use Historical Atlas of the World (Rand McNally) to let the student master the geography of Ancient Greece and Rome through extensive map work. In Latin we recommend Fundamentals in Latin Grammar 1 to continue the formal study of Latin. In Music we use Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory and Meet the Great Composers along with classical music selections for music appreciation.
