Analytical Grammar is an easy to follow, step-by-step program that will prepare students for high school and college-level work. The innovative and logical approach is not only extremely effective but makes learning grammar fun.
This program is designed to be taught over three “seasons” which spans three years, however, it is flexible and can be adapted to a one or two year program. Each “season” includes several units which are covered over the course of a week or two, followed by ongoing reinforcement activities, included in the Review and Reinforcement book.
Analytical Grammar teaches English grammar, punctuation, and usage. It is designed to be taught in three grammar “seasons” over three years (see timeline below); however, it is can also be adapted to a one-or two-year schedule.
Analytical Grammar 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 more strenuous high school and college-level work. The teacher does not need to be a grammar expert but can learn along with the student.
Analytical Grammar covers:
- All the parts of speech and parts of the sentence
- Phrases and clauses
- Classic sentence diagramming
- 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.”
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 optional Reinforcement and Review book.
- Units 1-10: Parts of speech, parts of the sentence and the basics of sentence diagramming
- Units 11-17: All the phrases and clauses (this completes the study of grammar)
- Units 18-35: All the rules of punctuation (commas, semi-colons, colons, quotations, etc.) and usage (who or whom, I or me, etc.)
High School Reinforcement
Customers ask the same question repeatedly: “What do we do for grammar in high school when my child has completed AG?”
In high school, grammar study should be complete. A student should apply his or her knowledge of grammar and mechanics to the study of literature and writing. BUT … many teachers want a way for their students to keep grammar skills and terminology sharp without “doing” a daily grammar program again.
Our High School Reinforcement books are the answer. There are four books, one for each year in high school. Each is set up with activities to reinforce all the grammar, diagramming, analysis, punctuation and usage taught in AG.
Each High School Reinforcement book contains 18 exercises, enough for one worksheet every two weeks throughout a school year. For all intents and purposes, this is all you really need.
