Literature and Grammar
Synergy utilizes BJU Press’s secondary literature to help students go beyond learning about literature to learning how to interact with literature. Students develop a deeper understanding of their fellow man as they examine texts from different cultures, diverse authors and genres, and a range of time periods. Students use text-focused close reading techniques through a before, during, and after reading approach which emphasizes comprehension and critical thinking. Students evaluate each selection, sharpening their discernment and shaping their worldview.
Synergy's middle and high school writing and grammar classes provide students with a real-world focus for exercising language skills as they systematically review and practice grammar and mechanics and directly apply English conventions to writing. Activities give students practice in using the writing process to draft text in various genres. Students synthesize grammar, usage, research, writing, digital, speaking, and listening skills to become effective oral and written communicators.
