Climbing to Good English Levels 5 and 6 are designed to run parallel in a mixed grade situation if needed with three English classes per week. Use the Practice Sheets the other two days per week, or as needed. Both grades study and discuss the same concepts at the same time. However, sixth grade is generally on a harder level and often has more work. The teacher guide gives clear instructions.

Each unit begins with a composition lesson which encompasses listening, reading, evaluation, taking notes, organizing, building vocabulary, explaining, writing, editing, and rewriting, followed with lessons on grammar, mechanics and word usage.

If your child has not had a thorough introduction to grammar concepts, or is coming out of the public school system, you may wish to have them go quickly through Climbing to Good English Level 3 or 4. This will provide them with the foundation they need to tackle the concepts presented in level 6 without overwhelming them.

The students are expected to help themselves do much of the work independently without much teacher help.

There is one hardcover teacher manual covering both 5th and 6th grades. This book is indispensable.

Included at the back of the workbook and in the textbook is a thesaurus and an English grammar handbook.
