English Grammar Skills provides a succinct, reader-friendly introduction to the skills needed to write and communicate effectively in the English language. Each lesson is labeled with a sign, making you aware if the emphasis is upon the eight parts of speech, writing skills or literature. Each lesson begins with new vocabulary and a vignette or poem, before moving on to the lesson and responding to the activity booklet. Designed to expose students to noble ideas and positive role models, students gain experience writing informative and challenging pieces using standard literary concepts. Each lesson and the corresponding activity questions are based upon the vignette in a clever approach that ties grammar skills to real life illustrations. This course is designed for the 7th or 8th grades, but is an excellent "brush up" or "recovery" study. Chapter Book 2 covers adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and verbals. 44 pages, saddle-stitched binding, softcover. 8 1/2" x 11".
