Logic level students in eighth grade at Arma Dei Academy study Western World History from the Enlightenment to the present age and New Testament Survey. Great works of literature correlating with the historical time period are read, discussed, and analyzed. Grammar usage and writing skills are sharpened through direct instruction and the ongoing fourteen steps of the Progymnasmata. The study of Latin continues as students master all five noun declensions and cases. In addition, students study Physical Science and continue their instruction in formal logic.
Bible New Testament Survey
Each subject is taught from a biblical perspective at Arma Dei Academy. While each day opens with prayer and a formal study of scripture, biblical discussion is not limited to a particular class period. Scripture memory is a critical component of the curriculum.
History World History: Discovery - Present
Western geography is taught in conjunction with history and corresponding literature.
Students should have a working understanding of grammar, usage, and punctuation. While these concepts will be regularly reviewed and incorporated into composition, incoming students not able to demonstrate mastery have the benefit of an individualized, independent remediation program.
