Product Description:

A very rigorous and complete 1-year course in grammar (parts of speech, word functions, punctuation, sentence structure and patterns). Now reprinted by Master Books, each lesson features plenty of white space and the front of the book contains a "Suggested Daily Schedule" with assignments listed for five days per week. Lessons are 1-2 pages of reading followed by 1-2 pages of exericises for practice. Fifteen tests are also provided, with an A and B form for each in case any tests need to be retaken. These are scheduled throughout the year, though not at regular intervals. Although designed to be self-instructional, particularly when used with the DVD (as is assumed in the schedule), some teacher help may be required. This book would be an excellent follow-up to Easy Grammar or Journey to Grammar Land, as it covers grammar at a college level! Answer keys to exercises and tests are found in the back of the book. Perfect-bound, 3-hole punched with perforated pages. Reproducible for one family or a small class (10 students or less).

Publisher Description:

Jensen's Grammar lessons and exercises were built with three concepts in mind. First, spaced repetition is the key to learning; hence, there is review in every lesson. Second, the information is given incrementally; that is, the material comes in a natural progression of detail and concept interwoven so as to move you along with something new each lesson while fitting it in with the material previously learned and practiced. Third, the sentences in the exercises will generally set a scene or describe an action. Thus, they are usually more interesting reading in themselves instead of the random sentences in exercises found in most grammar texts.

Students completing this course will learn valuable skills.

  • how to create, place, and punctuate relative clauses in order to write more sophisticated sentences
  • a simple procedure to reduce the number of words in a sentence to help you search for subjects and verbs
  • how to use a simple chart that unlocks the mystery of differentiating the major parts of speech
  • how to use the words and structures you are being taught in your own sentences
  • understanding the fundamentals of grammar in such a way that you will not forget them but will use them effectively
Category Description for Combined Grammar, Usage, Mechanics:

These materials offer a complete and comprehensive coverage of all three elements - grammar (i.e. parts of speech, complete sentences), usage (i.e. homophones, figures of speech, proper word choice to convey meaning), and mechanics (i.e. punctuation, capitalization).

I am choosing this curriculum for the fourth time. My older three children have used this curriculum as well as the format writing, punctuation, and vocabulary. All three of them tell me how much it helped them. It is not an easy course, but very beneficial.

I used Jensens format writing for my son and found it to be of good quality and engaging for a teen boy so I am trying this with my 9th grader

No nonsense grammar. Do it once, get it done. Not drag it out for years and years.
Cynthia S on Jul 26, 2016
My son requested a program that would emphasize punctuation that he could use as a review. This book may be useful as a reference as he works through Jensens Punctuation.

Needed something for a junior in high school that struggles with grammar some. Plus we needed in a short time. Not do be done over few years, but over a year or less.

Does this book cover subject and verb agreement?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Lesson 17 does specifically cover subject and verb agreement.
I have the older version of Jensens Grammar with the more solid green cover. Will the DVDs work with that version?
A shopper on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the older edition is compatible with the DVDs. There were no content changes with this new edition but there were significant format changes. The DVDs were actually prepared to supplement the original book.
Does this book have review questions and an answer key or is that sold seperate?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Test and answers book comes with it.
Does it come with two books, like one book that ask the questions for the students and then the other book is the key?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there are two books. One is the grammar workbook and one is a set of tests and the answer key for both the workbook and tests.
Can you use Jensen's grammar and Jensen's punctuation at the same time on alternating days, or would it be better to use the grammar one year and the punctuation the next year? I'm thinking about using Essentials in writing for composition. My student is going into 11th grade and is average in grammar and composition.
User on Aug 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Jensen's Grammar is thorough and comprehensive, completely covering punctuation. I do not think an additional book is necessary. Though I am not familiar with Essentials, an addition program for composition is in order.

I've used Jensen's Grammar for more than a dozen years, and I've always noticed that the students' grammar and syntax improves over the year as the student progresses in the book, no matter what the level or capability of the students at the beginning of the year.
How does this compare to Analytical Grammar?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Coverage between the two will be similar; both are comprehensive and "college-prep." The format is different. Analytical Grammar is based on teacher-student interaction while Jensen's allows the student to work independently.
