Course Description 


Elementary English Grammar & Writing (3rd - 5th grade)

Through this course, students will discover a variety of adventures that will supply a rich foundation for imaginative and enjoyable writing. the students will work through the IEW units as they learn to take notes, retell narrative stories, summarize references, write from pictures, and compose their own fables, myths, and fairy tales. When purchasing a new book, vocabulary cards will be included. These words, which are chosen to work easily in the writing assignments, expand student's vocabularies and add sophistication to their compositions. Acquiring facts about their composition while learning to write well has never been so enjoyable! 


Middle School English Grammar & Writing (6th - 8th grade)

Through this course, students will develop their skill with the Structure and Style Writing Method while learning about interesting, important people and events in world history from Gutenberg to the twenty-first century. An optional literature component studies novels that integrate with the historical topics used for writing assignments. By utilizing this additional component, it can give your child the world history credit he/she may need. This Student Book contains assignments, engaging source texts, blank outlines, checklists, clever vocabulary cards, and more.    


High School English Literature & Composition (9th - 12th grade)

This challenging course introduces students to great American literature in a chronological historical, literary, and artistic context, while developing skills in writing and literary analysis. Students will perform in-depth research throughout this advanced high school course. Students will also gain understanding of the development of American literature through an in-depth guided study of several great works.

A few works studied in this course include: Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper, The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Moby Dick by Herman Melville, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark TwainHouse of Mirth by Edith Wharton, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, etc.  



NOTE: Our goal through these IEW courses is to cover both the English as well as the History and/or Social Studies credits per year. In order to do so, instructors will provide additional history or social studies information that corresponds with each weekly lesson for your student to learn and or research. According to many umbrella schools as long as you do 75 hrs. (per semester) x 2 = 150 hours per year, will cover a full credit. Therefore, when you are spending 2 hours a day (1 hour for English and 1 hour for history or social studies), you can cover both credits in one year.  


*Here at MHA, we want all our students to have a pleasant and enjoyable learning experience so please feel free to come to us with any questions and/or concerns.*
