Logic level students in seventh grade at Arma Dei Academy study Western World History from creation through exploration and Old 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 Life Science and begin their initial instruction in formal logic.
