English in Blue & White

This English program was written by two educators who wanted a resource they could use to ensure their 8th grade students understood everything they needed to know before moving on to high school. Although written for that purpose, this program can also be used successfully with surrounding grade levels. It is a very concise guide that offers instruction and practice in grammar, usage, and mechanics as well as some information on composition and literature. How concise is it? Each concept covered (over 25 total in the areas of parts of speech, sentences, phrases, clauses, usage, and mechanics) includes a page or two of explanation and examples and then a page or two of practice exercises. It is all laid out clearly in a straightforward and easy to read manner. At the end of the book there are shorter sections on composition and literature. These include concise breakdowns of writing paragraphs and compositions, guidelines for writing, style reminders, various elements of literature, and a glossary of poetic terms. Aside from use as a "normal" English course, this could be useful as an assessment tool or summer program. 97 pgs, spiral bound. An answer key is available separately (please note that despite the price, the key contains only the answers; there aren't any teacher helps or other "bonuses"). - Melissa
