Analytical Grammar (AG) is a complete, broad spectrum series of books that cover every level of this important academic subject from 4th Grade to high school and beyond! Nothing is more important for academic and professional success than the myriad skills that come under the umbrella of “grammar”. If a student is mathematically challenged, there are calculators; if you are grammatically challenged, there is no pocket help and it is quite visible and significant. Your intelligence and knowledge will shine through a highly-developed ability to write, and grammar is the underpinning of all writing.
Robin Finley, creator of AG, is a knowledgeable teacher who has written her courses with deep awareness of the pitfalls and obstacles that students face in mastering grammar – one of the “scariest” subjects in school or out! There are many aspects of grammar: Punctuation, spelling, parts of speech and their usage, then applying these bits to effective writing techniques. Her book “Beyond the Book Report” is a very valuable teaching tool, covering book reports, essays of all varieties and research papers. Being comfortable with writing a research paper or topical essay will make college and other upper-level academic work enjoyable. Even in the professional setting, knowing how to research and put it all together is a tremendous skill. Of course, mastering essay writing will help with the SAT and other such exams. These skills are acquired through clear instruction and practice. AG’s methodical approach of presenting the basic concepts and examples, then moving along to the next one, while reviewing the previously-learned material, helps your student reach mastery at the end of the academic experience. Eventually, a person makes habits of using correct grammar and can keep them for life! Please visit the website, www.analyticalgrammar.com for complete information and ordering.
