Product Description:

Combining solid coverage of all aspect of grammar, the instructional format of this program is a bit unusual. Providing a self-paced program with “supervisor” aka parent/teacher check points, this course uses a paperback textbook with student workbook, both of which have color-coded pages. The learning guide lays out the steps for the student to complete, which are basically a reading assignment followed by workbook exercises. The workbook exercises ask students to write out definitions of grammar terms, to construct example sentences and paragraphs, and to complete reinforcement exercises. The concepts are presented in a straight-forward way with adequate examples and minimal repetitive work. Answers for the workbook exercises are in the back of the workbook. Upon section completion, there are six exams dividing the topic coverage. ~Judy

Publisher Description:

A general grammar text for middle school, teaching grammar through writing exercises. It covers all parts of speech, types of sentences, functions and case of nouns and pronouns in sentences.

The book is accompanied by six individual learning guides, which direct the student through the book and workbook.

The workbook accompanies the main Working with Grammar text, and provides all of the exercises that help students apply what they are learning.



The writing curriculum offered by Heron Press emphasizes a self-paced mastery approach to learning grammar and composition. While not a heavy writing or grammar course, it seems to be very well-designed. The straightforward way the materials are presented alongside the course learning guides should permit most students to complete the program on their own. The publisher also has a Public Speaking Course (#035125) that compliments the series. Most sets include a student text, workbook, learning guide, exams and exam guides, and a materials list. While most of the learning guides are printed simply on plain paper and stapled in the corner, they really do seem to be the hub of the curriculum, essentially serving as a lesson plan.

These books and materials are secular in focus and philosophy. The publisher is associated with L. Ron Hubbard, but we didn’t see any overt evidence of religious content. This is a well-designed series, with an emphasis on simplicity and focusing on the message.
