Skills needed for AHL?

Unread post by Bandy » Mon Nov 06, 2017 9:10 am

Hello, I'm wondering what skills would need to be in place for a student to be ready to begin AHL for 9th grade? This would be for a student that is not coming from a MFW background.
I'm especially interested in writing skills/English. Thanks!

My Father's World includes this advice on their language arts page regarding students entering their high school program. "NOTE: An incoming student weak in formal grammar should complete Easy Grammar Ultimate Series: Grade 8. Likewise, a student weak in composition skills should complete Writing with Skill Level 1 (at least half of the book)."

Thanks!
As far as completing at least half of WWS, I'm assuming they mean the first half? Thanks!
