Elijah's Transcript ~ English IV

Update ~ I am still trying to catch up on Elijah's transcript. Just a few more to go.

Elijah did very well in his final year of English. This year was a catchall of books and movies that I wanted him to accomplish before graduation. Elijah read all of the books independently and answered questions through essay or narration. He also did a bit of grammar and critical reading lessons through workbooks. He earned an A for this course.
