An LDS Approach to Grammar: Give Ear and Learn Wisdom
Why doesn’t English make sense? Delve into the history of English and how it has affected our grammar and spelling, as well as the way writing has changed over the years. This junior high and high school series of grammar books is very different from most approaches to teaching grammar. First, it uses a gospel context to invite the spirit and help students look at grammar in everyday situations with which they are familiar. Secondly, it believes that grammar is best taught by the study of good writing and then emulating those writing principles. Current research shows that a writing-based grammar program is more effective in teaching students to write well than the present overuse of rote exercises found in most grammar texts. While the fundamental elements of grammar are included and reviewed in each book, the series builds upon itself and asks the student to think a little differently about how grammar is a part of writing.
