Category Description for Applications of Grammar:

As the title implies, the emphasis in this program is on applying grammar rules to writing. Students learn to identify the eight parts of speech and how to use these properly in phrases, clauses, and sentences. The program stresses correct sentence structure, sentence diagramming, and good paragraph formation. As with all Christian Liberty books, this series is God-honoring as well.

All grammar books cover pretty much the same material, so what stands out about this one? First of all, biblical content is evident throughout the book. In addition, a student could learn a great deal of history just by reading the excerpts of various literary works used as examples. Each lesson begins with a clear explanation of a topic and gives examples to drive home the point. Tables are used to demonstrate concepts like person, tense, and voice. Exercises have an adequate but not excessive amount of practice for each skill. Later sections of the book focus on word usage and more advanced literary concepts. Students then use these skills in writing paragraphs, short stories or newspaper articles.

Not only is the content good, but so is the price - less than $25 for student book, teacher key and test booklet. Another good value from Christian Liberty Press.

This text is a treasure. Garry Moes' introduction on why good grammar and effective writing are so important is worth the price of this book. I have used this text for 9th and 10th grade students, and then finished up high school with the other books in this series.

I loved using this curriculum with my 8th grader! Better yet he actually didn't mind using it (a first for us)! This is the best grammar program I've found and you certainly can't beat the price I might compare it with Easy Grammar Plus in that it is simple and straightforward in its approach although this Applications of Grammar book has more teaching and seems more cohesive There is very little teacher preparation with this I simply went through the book and divided it up into lessons (the layout of the book makes it very EASY) The text is full of explanations and examples and for the first time my son understands the nitty-gritty of grammar The tests are also non-intimidating but are thorough enough for me to make sure my son has retained the information The only drawback I found is that there's very little writing in this book but that was remedied easily enough by assigning book reports and essays I've noticed that this program becomes much more focused on writing in Book 3 so I'm looking forward to getting my son into thatI can't recommend this curriculum highly enough It's focused easy-to-use and extremely reasonably priced
