My Grammar and I (Or Should That Be 'Me'?)
Perhaps your high school student (or you) needs just a bit of refreshing or review in grammar. This activity book provides 103 varied, short activities that are actually fun. Overview the main elements of grammar (parts of speech, sentence structure, tenses, participles, gerunds, punctuation, usage, Latin abbreviations, and more). Each section explains the grammar element and then provides a “quiz” (maybe a crossword puzzle, a fill-in-the blank, etc). Quizzes will periodically reveal the book’s British publishing, including a large amount of references to England (history, locations, etc.), a small quantity of uniquely British terms (maths, “pouring cream”), and formal usage not as common in the US: i.e. “shall” and “whom.” These aspects are minor, though, and provide a fun challenge rather than making it inaccessible for the American English user. Consumable, nonreproducible, 6”x 9”, pb. 224 pgs. ~ Ruth
