Product Description:

This program was designed to help students unlock the English language. Once students log in, they may begin the lessons. It is recommended that they complete the lessons in order, but if you are using this for extra practice, they can choose which lessons they want to work through. Each lesson begins with a short, narrated introduction and explanation of the target concept. For example, in the adjectives lesson, the text and accompanying narration will define adjectives, give tips for recognizing them, and offer examples of adjectives in sentences. Afterwards, students will answer a few multiple choice questions to test their comprehension of the new material. Finally, students will complete an exercise in which they identify adjectives and other parts of speech in sample sentences. All of the exercises utilize complete sentences to help kids see how all of the skills relate to each other in context the way students will see them in books and the way they will use them in their own writing. The first CD-ROM Parts of Speech and Sentence Structure has around 30 lessons. Students in the fourth grade are expected to complete the first 15, students in the fifth grade should complete the first twenty, and students in the sixth grade or above should work through them all. After the first twenty lessons, there are reviews and a test to track progress and understanding. There is also a final test for students to take after all of the lessons have been completed. The second CD-ROM Punctuation and Mechanics - follows the same format as the first, with explanations, comprehension questions, and complete sentences to edit appropriately. It also includes around thirty lessons. 4th and 5th grade students should only start this CD-ROM after completing the allotted lessons from the Parts of Speech CD. 6th grade and above students should complete all lessons of both CDs. As students complete lessons on either CD-ROM, their scores are shown next to the lesson numbers on the lesson page, so they can see which lessons they've finished and you can decide which ones need more practice. The third CD-ROM offers additional reinforcement for the first and second CD-ROM in the form of workbook PDF pages with challenging sentences and essays for the students to label.Programs are for Windows only.

Publisher Description:

The Punctuation & Mechanics offers over thirty narrated lessons and rounds out the instruction by taking students beyond the parts of speech to the application of capitalization and mechanics rules.

How many times have you learned, after instructing a class in punctuation, how little they have actually understood, or for that matter, retained? Even a 70% passing grade suggests that students have failed to master 30% of the lesson. And if research holds true, they will forget over half of those answers in only a few days. Consequently, you are caught in a vicious cycle of instruction, student work, correction, and further instruction.

With our Punctuation & Mechanics, those days are over. After the narrated text, students are taken step by step through each piece of information and then progressively challenged"without realizing it"to correct even the most difficult sentences. If they make a mistake, the program will inform them at that precise moment and offer them clues to work toward the right answer.

You are spared the drudgery of checking and rechecking papers, and a student may rework a lesson as often as they like for a new grade.

These materials are also comprehensive in scope but are supplemental as opposed to more complete programs.

I have 6 children grades 5-12, so I need a program that will work for multiple children and accomplish that which I cannot seem to in this area with them. I am so looking forward to more happy learning, less stress!

It's computer based but does not require an internet connection. The program grades the work. We will be using this to brush up on skills before taking the SAT and GED exams.

Because of the fact that this is a computer-based teaching program with a self-checking mechanism.

How do I install this on a newer computer? What type of computer would you suggest/works best?
A shopper on May 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is an older program (and, in fact, is "going away"). It will only work on PCs and you may not be able to install it on a newer computer. You can contact www.thegrammarkey.com for information on how to install on a newer computer.

The Grammar Key
THE GRAMMAR KEY (PUNCTUATION & MECHANICS) that I purchased came with two other separate -THE GRAMMAR KEY- computer disc programs. THE GRAMMAR KEY (Parts of Speech and sentence structure) program, is very comprehensive in helping me to precisely identify the parts of speech. Which is one of my main goals in studying basic English Grammar. Thank you, Rainbow Resource Center
