Designed to be taught in three grammar "seasons" over three years, Analytical Grammar is not your average grammar program!

Used successfully with students of varying abilities, the innovative and logical method is not only effective, but actually enjoyable. The step-by-step approach will prepare students for the rigor of college work, while the comprehensive scope ensures mastery. Approaching grammar with the idea that students learn it and then move on, rather than continually re-learning the same concepts over and over, the "spiral" method will help students master grammar once and for all.

Topics covered include:

  • All the parts of speech and parts of the sentence
  • Phrases and clauses
  • Classic sentence diagraming
  • Rules of punctuation and capitalization
  • Common usage errors

The student book contains worksheets that include instructions, three practice pages, a "skill support" page which emphasizes rewriting skills, and separate tests. The teacher's guide includes a day-by-day suggested schedule for each week, as well as a short introduction to teaching each unit. The same lesson notes are included in both the teacher's and student guides; the teacher's guide includes the full-size student worksheets with the correct answers overlaid.This kit includes:

  • Analytical Grammar Student Workbook, 396 pages, softcover.
  • Analytical Grammar Teacher Book, 392 pages, softcover.

The teacher's guide includes a day-by-day suggested schedule for each week, as well as a short introduction to teaching each unit.

    The Eternal Argument is set up as an analogy of western culture and literature as a long dispute. Theistic thought and humanistic thought are seen to play out through Western literature, just like impassioned conversations and sometimes-feuds between family members.

    A lens through which students can interpret literature, The Eternal Argument provides a way to engage the "other" side, to understand the argument of literature, and to more fully recognize our history and culture. Each chapter of this book touches upon a Great Work; once the book is completed and students have the tools to be able to fully interpret literature, the second-to-last chapter reviews the books previously discussed. Providing an overarching framework on which to hang different arguments and ideas, this unique work will encourage students to look at how humanity has dealt with various moral issues throughout history, throughout different eras, and through genres of literature. Three discussion questions end each chapter. 286 pages, softcover.

    High School-Adult. Designed to be read by both parent and student for discussion.
