Product Description

The importance of the spoken and written word in Christian culture cannot be overestimated. In this English grammar guide, Nancy Wilson surveys the major concepts in English grammar for beginners at the late elementary and junior high level, even adults seeking a brush-up. In the exercises, Wilson goes beyond common, contrived sentences that serve merely to illustrate a point and uses many selections from Scripture and from great English writers which help to instruct the student through their content, style, and structure. In addition to a helpful format that highlights key definitions, punctuation issues, and important concepts, short historical sidebars tell the fascinating story of the development of English. She continues the traditional and challenging exercise of sentence diagramming, which trains students to quickly analyze the structure of any given sentence. The grammatical explanations, the logic of diagrams, and the rhetoric of her examples blend with complementary emphases to create a helpful classical and Christian text.

    I was so happy to find Our Mother Tongue: A Guide to English Grammar. This is a wonderful resource to either teach from or review basic grammar concepts. The examples and explanations are clear and easily understood. I only wish there was a workbook to go with it for extra practice. I've been typing out my own work sheets. Yet, this prepares me to teach better. This guide is appropriate and easy to use with multi grade levels.

    This book is very similiar in nature to First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind but adds a religious twist. It starts by devoting a section to learning the 8 parts of speech and goes on in later pages to tell about clauses, phrases and concludes with a glossary. I like the word origin part that tells how the English language came to be.There are a few assignments for each section which is why I give it 4 stars. I would say that this is more a reference with a few assignments thrown in for practice.If you are looking for a complete solution for a school year, look further like maybe Complete Book of Grammar & Punctuation from the complete book series. If you are on the other hand looking for reference material to teach lnaguage arts then this is an excellent choice.
