Product Description

Developed to follow the classic Saxon model of incremental development and continuous review, Hake's Grammar and Writing is a comprehensive English language curriculum that incorporates grammar, writing, spelling, and vocabulary development. Core-knowledge content, such as history, geography, science, and literature, is also embedded in the curriculum.

This kit includes a Student Textbook with approximately 110 lessons, a Student Workbook, and a Teacher Packet. The Student Text is written directly to the student and provides instruction on key grammar and usage concepts with bolded words and examples; writing exercises are given daily while the workbook provides additional practice opportunities. The Teacher package includes answers and test blackline masters, as well as a class schedule.

The Teacher Packet includes a short message to the teacher, schedule, a complete set of answer keys (for the textbook practice and review sets, writing lessons, tests, and more practice worksheets), and test masters. Tests and writing lessons are designed to be administered every 5 lessons (after the first 10). Teacher book is softcover.

This Grade 8 kit includes:

  • 1 Teacher Packet, softcover.
  • 1 Student Text, 715 pages, 111 lessons indexed, softcover.

    Homeschool Specialists' Review

    I've always been a big fan of the Saxon Math teaching method, which facilitates the learning process through long-term repetition. My six children, with a wide range of learning styles, have all benefited from this approach. So we were thrilled when we found a writing and grammar course that utilized the same principles.

    Hake's Grammar and Writing presents a new grammar or writing concept every day with review exercises that allow the student to continue practicing concepts previously learned. The detailed lesson presentation encourages students to be self-guided throughout, with very little intervention by the parent/teacher. My three boys have all acquired excellent writing and grammar skills through the use of this program.

    Kits include student text and workbook with 107 to 112 lessons; and teacher's packet with test masters and answer keys. Grade 4 to 8. From Saxon.

      Generally good curriculum, but more errors than I expected

      We've used the Grammar and Writing for the past few years, and while the curriculum has been more than adequate, I was surprised at the number of errors in the answer key. At least once a week I've found an error in the lesson answers - either incorrect answers, or answers that aren't even options in the student text (like Review Set 62, problem 1 - the answer in the answer key is not even listed as an option in the student text). It makes it frustrating to check & grade when you can't always trust what's written in the key. It seems like it's been more of an issue in Grammar & Writing 8, as I don't remember having this many issues with the answer key in past years.

      Amazing curriculum, that's Saxon for you.

      Saxon did an amazing job of teaching grammar and writing in this comprehensive book. The text is written to the student, which makes it easy for them to follow without having a parent look over their shoulder every minute. I can honestly say this "eighth" grade text could easily be used to teach a 9th to 12th grade student that had not been previously taught thorough grammar skills.

      I like the idea that the grammer and writing are separated into two books. It gives greater detail then other material I looked at. I do wish the student text was a hardcover.

    Q: Stating with the 8th grade? My son used public virtual school for language arts for 6th and 7th grades. Could he easily transition to this curriculum having never used it before? I know it teaches diagramming which he isn't familiar with, does it review?


    Yes, this curriculum gives a clear explanation of each concept covered.
