The Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind curriculum is a thorough, easy-to-use grammar program that will bring students from the early stages of basic definitions through advanced sentence structure and analysis. Picking up where the First Language Lessons series left off, this course will give students the grammar skills needed to write and speak well.
This Blue Workbook and Blue Workbook Key (part of a planned four-level series where the "color" levels may be used in any order) are part of a course that is intended to be used along with the Core Instructor Text, and Comprehensive Handbook of Rules (both sold-separately and NOT included in this kit).
Parents and teachers go through the dialogue, rules, and examples in the Core Instructor Text while students follow along in the Workbook. The Comprehensive Handbook of Rules covers all the rules along with repeated examples and will become the student's guide to writing. The workbook features numbered lessons that briefly re-state the primary rule or rules being taught before diving into a variety of exercises that will carefully build understanding. Charts, graphics, and examples are integrated as needed, and regular review is incorporated throughout. Exercises often draw from literature, novels, histories, biographies, and science books to encourage students to see how the rules they're learning operate in real literature.
This innovative program combines the three essential elements of language learning: understanding and memorizing rules (prescriptive teaching), repeated exposure to examples of how those rules are used (descriptive instruction), and practice using those rules in exercises and in writing (practical experience).
Grading is made easy with the Blue Workbook Key. It includes exercises from the student workbook with the correct answers overlaid, explanations for the instructor, and guidance as to when the answers might be ambiguous.
The blue level can be used for Grade 5 & up. Covers one year of instruction.
This kit includes:
Please Note: The publisher has planned four Workbooks for this curriculum. Each workbook contains the same rules and examples-but four completely different sets of exercises and assignments, allowing students to develop a wide-ranging knowledge of how the rules and examples are put to use in writing. As of October 2020, the purple, red, and blue levels are available.
