Character Quality Language Arts

CQLA REVISED books!

TFT has been working hard to make the revisions and changes that customers who have been testing the program for the past five years have requested! The Blue Series and the Green Series are both now revised and ready for purchase. We will take orders for the Red Series on a special order. We ask that you purchase either Blue or Green starting in Spring 2010. (The Red Series will be revised next year; all three colors will be "new" and "improved" sometime in the next year or so.

What Does CQLA Have That Other Programs Do Not Have?

Color Series and Levels

In CQLA, it does not matter which color you begin with! The three color series - Red, Blue, and Green - are just the way the character qualities are divided. Choose the level you need according to your student's language arts abilities (Level Pre A - 2nd and 3rd grade; Level A 4th and 5th grade; Level B 6th, 7th, and 8th grade; Level C high school), then choose the color series you desire according to the character qualities you would like to study that year. Be sure to get the same color (same set of character qualties) for each student so that the entire family is studying the same quality at the same time.

Note: We are recommending that families order the Blue Series or the Green Series starting in Spring 2010. These are the two newly-revised series. We think you will love them. (Check out the revisions in our Blue Series samples here)

CQLA Teacher's Guide
The CQLA Teacher’s Guide is an inexpensive guide to using Character Quality Language Arts. This 300-page spiral bound book contains an overview of the entire program, a “how to” section to instruct parents in how to use the program, a book report guide, complete set of grammar cards (all the grammar rules learned in CQLA on “cards” in alphabetical order), the master Checklist Challenge (showing all editing and revising items taught in CQLA from all levels), a Scope and Sequence chart showing what is taught in which unit, a Content Area and Character Quality Overview Chart (also available at this web site) indicating what Bible and character principles each unit covers, a Frequently Asked Questions section (huge!), a guide to citing sources, a guide to coding/highlighting Checklist Challenge revisions in essays, a detailed homophone chart, a sample from a Level B unit, and a cassette explaining the program (that correlates with the Level B sample)
 
This entire Teacher’s Guide is for the CQLA teacher to learn to use the program. It is not specific to any one level or any one CQLA book. (Those items are in the Teacher’s Helps and Answer Keys at the end of each unit.) At only $25.00, it is a great way to learn more about CQLA with a minimum investment for those considering making a switch from several other curriculum materials to the all-in-on Character Quality Language Arts. It truly is a writing/grammar handbook, so you can't go wrong with this item!

CQLA Spelling Notebook
The Spelling Notebook (SN) is a separate book that correlates with CQLA. Over ninety spelling rules are included in the Spelling Notebook, and each page contains a Teacher’s Tip that explains that page’s rule for the teacher. Each week as part of the student’s spelling lesson, he is told to turn to certain pages of the SN containing that week’s rule(s), and record his words in the correct column (g says guh; g says juh, etc.). Only one Spelling Notebook is needed per student for all your student’s CQLA years as it covers spelling rules for grades two through twelve and is made for long-term use.
