Set of Analytical Grammar

Description

Analytical Grammar teaches English grammar, punctuation, and usage. It is designed to be taught in three grammar “seasons” (see timeline) over three years; however, it is flexible enough to be adapted to a one- or two-year schedule. AG has been used successfully with all students from the learning disabled to the highly gifted. This innovative and logical method is not only extremely effective, but makes learning grammar fun.

AG has been used successfully with all students from the learning disabled to the highly gifted. This innovative and logical method is not only extremely effective, but makes learning grammar fun.

Analytical Grammar is an easy-to-follow, step-by-step approach that will prepare your student for high school and college-level work. The home teacher does not need to be a grammar expert but can learn along with the student.

We also have optional DVD companions to use with AG. These feature Erin and Robin teaching the lessons and practicing with a few sentences from each unit. The DVDs will be a big help for those who either don’t have the time or feel they don’t have the background to teach AG on their own.

If you do the program straight through, you only need a teacher book and student work book. IF YOU PLAN TO BREAK UP THE PROGRAM OVER TWO OR THREE YEARS, YOU MUST USE THE REINFORCEMENT AND REVIEW BOOK AS WELL. Please don’t break the program up without using the R&R book.

Analytical Grammar covers:

All the parts of speech and parts of the sentence
Phrases and clauses
Classic sentence diagraming
Rules of punctuation and capitalization
Common usage errors.
Analytical Grammar includes:

Student notes
Plenty of exercises to practice skills
Tests to evaluate progress
Complete answer keys and useful teacher notes
Instructions for creating a Grammar Notebook which becomes a valuable reference resource
An optional (sold separately) Review and Reinforcement workbook to keep skills sharp between “seasons.”
The timelines:

One of Analytical Grammar’s strengths is that you don’t have to teach it all year! We recommend breaking it up over three grammar ‘seasons.’ Below are two timelines to illustrate this. The 36 boxes represent the weeks in an average school year. Each unit in the program takes about a week to do. The “Rs” refer to exercises in the Reinforcement and Review book.

Here’s the unit breakdown:

Units 1-10: Parts of speech, parts of the sentence and the basics of sentence diagraming
Units 11-17: All the phrases and clauses (this completes the study of grammar)
Units 18-34: All the rules of punctuation (commas, semi-colons, colons, quotations, etc.) and usage (who or whom, I or me, etc.)
