The Completion of God's Plan for Man
Grade 10

This book completes the series of God's Plan for His People. It discusses the Creation and Fall of Man, his sinful condition and need of a Saviour, and God's plan of redemption and man's future as he responds to God's plan. The Bible is the pupil's textbook. The workbook guides the pupil as he looks up verses and answers questions that include some multiple choice and fill in the blanks, as well as questions requiring easy answers. There are some time-line studies and vocabulary exercises involving less-familiar words. Some exercises teach Bible geography and the use of Bible-study helps.

The teacher's manual contains a reduced copy of the pupil's workbook with the answers filled in. Oral reviews, main points, and other notes are in the margins.

The test booklet contains a test for each chapter and a final test on tear-out sheets.

Communicating Effectively
Grades 9 & 10

This Bible-based, advanced grammar and composition course consists of parallel texts called Book One and Book Two. Either book may be studied first, and Grades 9 and 10 can be combined for English class if desired. Both books review grammar concepts from Grade 8 and previous years, but each one deals with different kinds of composition.

New grammar concepts include retained objective complements, nominative absolutes, subjects of infinitives, moods of verbs, and idioms. Composition skills in Book One include lessons on listening and speaking, Bible study, outlining, argumentative essays, poetry, and letter writing. Composition lessons in Book Two teach study skills, expository essays, stories, descriptions, reference sources, and parliamentary procedure.

Interspersed throughout both books are lessons to improve writing, speaking, and editing skills. Writing and speaking lessons focus on style rather than content.

Investigating God's Orderly World
Book Two -- Grades 9 & 10

This hardbound textbook was written to guide students in their growing awareness of the orderly world around them, its potential usefulness to the glory of God, and God's true relation to it as revealed in His Word.

Men have performed experiment after experiment to learn the whys and hows of electricity, heat, weather, plants, and almost every other feature of God's orderly world. Because science is orderly, many conclusions have been reached that are worthy of knowing and teaching. Investigating God's Orderly World Books One and Two are a collection of some of the more important discoveries of orderliness.

The information was gathered from many sources and reviewed for scientific accuracy. Many experiments are suggested to explain and illustrate the facts presented. In this way, the book promotes a practical working knowledge of the laws and wonders of God's orderly world.

The units are arranged to introduce concepts in a logical order. Each unit begins with an introductory page, which explains the Scriptural attitude that should be cultivated as the study progresses, stimulates interest with challenging questions, and acquaints the student with new vocabulary for the unit. Each unit is well illustrated with many original drawings and photographs. The units are divided into sections with study exercises for each section. At the end of each unit, study exercises provide review of the vocabulary and of the important facts and concepts studied.

These are the titles of the 12 units in Book Two: "Light," "Sound," "The Body, " "Behavior," "Work and Machines," "Energy and Engines," "Principles of Chemistry, " "Survey of Materials," "Electricity and Magnetism," "Generating and Using Electricity," "Reprodution and Heredity," and "Care of the Body."

The hardbound teacher's manual suggests procedures for teaching each unit. An outline of the major concepts to be taught in each unit is also included for the teacher's convenience. An answer key and a list of suggested equipment for each unit makes this guide very useful.
