Category Description for Grammar with a Writing Emphasis:

These materials focus on grammar but also include some writinginstruction.




Category Description for The Stewart English Program:

Grammar with a purpose is the overriding philosophy of this program as it seeks to demonstrate the connection of grammar instruction to reading and writing. The lessons are interesting, even appealing. After an explanation of the topic, samples are presented from great literature, so the student can see the technique or rule as used by successful authors such as Agatha Christie, J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Louis Stevenson, Jane Austen, Jack London and many more. Exercises are very interactive and always presented with the goal of improving writing skills, emphasizing the application of the material to a finished product. Charlotte Mason advocates will like the inclusion of copy work as students are asked to find and copy samples of the construct from other literature. Composition is also integrated throughout the program, but not in enough quantity to qualify this as a complete English course. Use it with another writing course, journaling or with a literature program that incorporates a lot of writing (such as the Literature Critical Thinking courses by Jim Stobaugh). Each worktext can be used over a 2-year span. Book 1, Principles Plus, emphasizes the basics and has excellent explanations of the parts of speech and punctuation rules (especially good presentation of quotation marks). It also covers parts of the sentence and subject-verb agreement. Book 2, Grammar Plus, is a complete grammar course. The presentation of grammatical structures is by function rather than form. It covers more complex issues of agreement, usage, pronoun case, and advanced punctuation. While each of the three books incorporate the use of learned elements in writing, Book 3, Writing Plus moves into the building of written compositions, culminating with writing activities that get you started on full-length pieces. It emphasizes writing style and stylistic methods. All instruction for the course is contained in the worktext. Teacher's Guides are simply Answer Keys to the exercises.

I wanted this book because the teacher guide for book two had good supplemental ideas, and I am counting on this guide to also have great ideas to deepen my students' understanding. Thank you.

We have just finished this program with one student It is the best program I have found for high school; better than A Beka or Jensen's if your child does not need basic grammar remediation This is not a program for students with poor grammar skills They do not need excellent skills but good grammar skills are a must for this program It is ok if they aren't good writers yet Stewart will make them good writers Stewart does not cover research or report writing as thoroughly as A Beka but it covers it quite adequately The emphasis of this program is practical usage not reiteration and memorization The structure worked well for my son who is a fairly confidant writer and I imitated some of the exercise for a more reluctant younger writer I would not use book 2 or book 3 before high school though Some of the lessons are very time consuming so consider dividing them into multiple days If you don't divide the lessons be prepared to have bored angry teenagers We used the complete set over a two year period There is a great deal of information and practice crammed into these thin books a great value I found the lack of teacher preparation the books are intended for self-teaching a blessing with the number and ages of children I'm home schooling I don't know if the teacher manual would be helpful or not I never opened it
