Product Description

Each year, parents and teachers go through the scripted dialogue, rules, and examples in the Core Instructor Text. Instructor notes thoroughly explain any ambiguities and how to handle concepts that the student may find difficult. Scripted lessons and step-by-step instruction take students from the most basic concepts through advanced grammatical concepts such as modal verbs and multiple functions of noun clauses, while extensive diagramming exercises reinforce the rules (and are a great help to technical and visual learners).

Text for examples and exercises are drawn from great works of literature, as well as from well-written nonfiction texts in science, mathematics, and the social sciences. The program is easily customizable to each student’s strengths and weaknesses, and regular review leads to mastery. Students follow along and do the exercises in the required workbook (workbooks are not sequential and you may begin with any color; see workbook product descriptions for more details).

What others are saying

  1. Question

    When was this book last revised? Are there older or newer editions of the core instructor text?

    • There are no “revised editions” of this text at this time. It was reprinted earlier this year and a couple of corrections were made. You can see those on our corrections page: https://welltrainedmind.com/corrections/core-instructor-text-grammar-well-trained-mind/

  2. 5 out of 5 Easy to use

    Very teacher friendly. Easy for me to instruct kiddos with. Grammar is not my strength. I am thankful for this curriculum. My children enjoy this grammar. Previous curriculum they have loathed.

  3. Question

    After removing my high school student from the school system, how do I know if he needs this program?

    • Does he have a firm grasp of all the parts of speech and how they are used; of how the parts of a sentence work and how to diagram them; of how to properly punctuate all types of sentences, quotations, etc; and of how to cite sources in a written essay or research paper? If the answer to any of those questions is No, then we’d suggest downloading the sample of this program and taking a look.

  4. Question

    Is there a placement test for this series to determine where to start?

    • No, there isn’t. Sorry. We generally don’t recommend this series to students younger than 5th grade (many wait until 6th, and that’s fine too). Before starting this, the student should have completed “First Language Lessons, Level 4” or a comparable grammar curriculum.

  5. Question

    I understand that I can use any workbook at any time but is there a theme or time period to each color? Also, for the scripted instruction, how long does a lesson take to go through?

    • No, there is not a time period for each color. As for lesson times…we recommend four lessons per week, but the book says this: “Take as long as you need to finish each lesson…it’s perfectly acceptable to take more than one year to finish a workbook. The earlier lessons are shorter and simpler; they increase in both complexity and length as the book goes on. But especially in the later lessons, don’t worry if you need to divide a lesson over two days, or take more than one week to complete a week’s worth of lessons…The first time through, ask the student to complete each exercise. In subsequent years, however, you can adjust the student’s workload in the earlier (and simpler) lessons so that you can spend more time on the later exercises. If the student remembers and understands the concept, ask her to do the first four or five sentences in the exercise. If she completes them correctly, skip the rest of the exercise and move on. This will allow you to customize the program to each student’s strengths and weaknesses.”

  6. Question

    If my sixth grader hasn’t studied grammar where would we begin?

    • You can begin with this program. You’d want to buy the Core Instructor Text, the Purple Workbook, and the Key to The Purple Workbook.

  7. Question

    Is this a curriculum that could be implemented in a classroom setting?

    • One person found this helpful

      Yes, absolutely! The teacher would need a copy of the Core Instructor Text and of the Key, and each student would need a Student Workbook to follow along with the lessons and to do the exercises. For more specific questions about that, you can contact us at support@welltrainedmind.com.

  8. Question

    Grammar intermediate has a 6week free download which is great for us to try out, but will the download have 6weeks of the wookbook to be able to carry out the exercise or will work book need to be purchased?

    • It includes the first six weeks of the workbook too!

  9. 5 out of 5 Perfect!

    We’ve been using the free sample and it is perfect for 10th grade after a Charlotte Mason gentle grammar in elementary and middle school.
