Category Description for Winston Grammar:

So, you want to include grammar in your studies - but all that diagramming and dissecting of sentences doesn't appeal? How about a more hands-on, participative approach? Winston Grammar is a grammar method using very little writing, no diagramming and is a truly kinesthetic program. Colorful "clue" cards containing the parts of speech (with definitions) are used in lieu of diagramming. These cards are laid out in the same pattern as the sentence; the goal is for students to reach an intuitive understanding of the use of the parts of speech and language structure. As students learn more parts of speech and their functions, additional cards are added. On the back side of the clue cards are instructions showing Winston Grammar marking conventions so you may progress to using these to identify parts of speech in a sentence (ie; underline nouns once, verbs twice, etc.). The regular program is sufficient for 3-4 years of grammar instruction. Since the mastery approach of learning is used, you can start at any age or grade level, but the basic course should be completed before progressing to the advanced program. The advanced program contains a review of the material covered in the basic program, then progresses to more complex grammatical structures. Note that Winston Grammar does not cover punctuation or verb usage, but these are commonly found in other English coursework.

Several supplemental items are also available. The Basic Program Supplementary Workbook contains 30 additional consumable worksheets that provide more practice for students using basic Winston Grammar. Tests and quizzes are included right in the workbook. You may purchase the additional workbook without an answer key or as a set. Winston Word Works is an extension of the Basic program. It teaches proper usage of words that are commonly misused - like lie and lay, who and whom, I and me, etc. - and is meant to be used between the Basic and Advanced Programs. Word Works includes a teacher book, a student workbook and cards.

We did the Winston Grammar basic level last year and my daughters both liked it. It was challenging without being overwhelming. Hoping for the same with this level.

How long does it take to finish Winston Word Works? For example, could it be completed over the summer, by a teen, in preparation for the Advanced Level?
Jessica K on Feb 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We spread it out over a school year but it could easily be completed over the summer.

Good practice, easy to understand
I love this curriculum. We learn so much and it is easy to understand. We started with the basic set and we are ending with this practice book. You can use this book even if you haven't done Winston before.
