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.
