Designed to accompany the Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind program, this Comprehensive Handbook of Rules assembles into one handy reference work all of the principles that govern the English language-from basic definitions ("A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea") through advanced sentence structure and analysis. Each rule is illustrated with examples drawn from great literature, along with classic and contemporary works of science, history, and mathematics.
Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind is an innovative program that combines the three essential elements of language learning: understanding and memorizing rules (prescriptive teaching), repeated exposure to examples of how those rules are used (descriptive instruction), and practice using those rules in exercises and in writing (practical experience).
Each year, parents and teachers go through the dialogue, rules, and examples in the Core Instructor Text; students follow along in the Student Workbook. This repetition solidifies the concepts, definitions, and examples in the student's mind.
There are four Student Workbooks, one for each year. Each Student Workbook contains the same rules and examples-but four completely different sets of exercises and assignments, allowing students to develop a wide-ranging knowledge of how the rules and examples are put to use in writing.
Each Student Workbook comes with its own Key, providing not only answers, but also explanations for the parent/instructor, and guidance as to when the answers might be ambiguous (as, in English, they often are).
All of the rules covered, along with the repeated examples for each, are assembled for ongoing reference in this Comprehensive Handbook of Rules.
Use Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind to teach English grammar thoroughly, effectively, and with confidence-no matter what your background or experience!
