    I wanted to like this grammar book but I would not recommend this curriculum to teach grammar.

    -- It assumes an extensive, solid background in grammar.

    --It has brief and incomplete explanations.

    -- Exercises act like the student already knows what the lesson is about and this is just a refresher.

    --Exercises are often tricky -- again assumes the student has a grasp on the subject matter

    -- the additional Answer key book is necessary and often needed to figure things out.

    --The workbook binding split and cracked in the copies we purchased. The workbook quickly falls apart.. It can be written in but paper also has to be used because there isn't room to do many of the exercises.

    This was not a good choice for us. We did much better with Analytical Grammar with two of our other students who did much better than the students who were doing the Mother Tongue book. We will be switching to Analytical Grammar next school year with the students who did Mother Tongue this year.

    If your student has a solid, extensive background in grammar. This might be the book for you.

    This curriculum would be great as review or as practice but was not a good curriculum for teaching grammar concepts. My students were middle school students and this curriculum was not helpful for them.
