Applications of Grammar 2 Student Book
This workbook continues to lay a foundation for effective communication skills. Students will review the basics of English grammar, focusing on part of speech; using phrases and clauses properly; diagramming key words, phrases, and clauses; writing and diagramming sentences; and clarifying agreement in sentences. The final unit focuses on the basics of good composition.
As the title implies, the emphasis is on applying grammar rules to writing. The program stresses correct sentence structure, sentence diagramming, and good paragraph formation. As with all Christian Liberty Press books, this series is God-honoring as well. All grammar books cover pretty much the same material, so what stands out about this series? First of all, the biblical content. 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.
These materials offer complete coverage of both writing and grammar.
