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.
Grades 6 and Up.
This kit includes:
- Analytical Grammar Student Workbook, 396 pages, softcover.
- Analytical Grammar Teacher Book, 392 pages, softcover.

Homeschool Specialists' Spotlights▼▲
From the first time I saw this curriculum, I fell in love with it! Designed for grades 6 and up, the student workbook teaches all the necessary grammar skills in just 10 weeks per year, spread out over a 3-year time frame. After the initial course, your students just need to periodically complete review work sheets (sold separately) to ensure they don't forget what they have learned. After completing the course, students can continue to practice their grammar by working through reinforcement work sheets and books (also sold separately).
The teacher's guide gives detailed but uncomplicated instructions for the program and focuses on positive reinforcement. If you dont want to do all the teaching yourself, there are also companion teaching DVDs. I love that Junior & Junior Mechanics programs are also available to introduce younger students to the basics of grammar.
With regard to ease of use, thoroughness, and flexibility, this is currently one of the best products on the market for teaching grammar. Approx. 395 pages each, two softcovers. -- Cherrié
Ask a Question▼▲
Q: Approximately what grade level(s) does this curriculum target?
Grade 6 and up.
Q: Could this program be used with highschool students who never really "got" grammar? I'm trying to prepare two grammatically challenged highschoolers for college. I want something that gets the fundamentals AND more rigorous grammar into their heads.
Yes, this is an excellent tool for developing and mastering grammar skills. If you feel that you need additional support, teaching DVDs are available as CBD stock number WW232619.
Q: I would like to know if you can accelerate this program and accomplish it in a year. I am trying to help someone get their highschoolers caught up. I need to do this in 6 months to maybe a year.
According to the pusblisher, yes, you can easily complete the program within a school year. In the Teacher Book, about seven pages in from the beginning of the book, is a page called "Suggestions for Shortcuts." Just use those steps to accelerate the program.
