The Grammar Guidebook (formerly The Comprehensive Handbook of Rules)

0<0
$13.56$17.95
 

The Grammar Guidebook was called The Comprehensive Handbook of Rules in its first edition. We renamed it because:
1)”Guidebook” makes people think of adventures in the Land of Grammar while “Handbook of Rules” makes them think about the unfair dress-code their high school had; 2)People who were searching for Grammar books couldn’t tell what ours was about; and 3)We are fiery fanatics for alliteration.
If you have The Comprehensive Handbook of Rules, you don’t need The Grammar Guidebook; they are the same book with different covers & title pages.

Designed to accompany the Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind program or stand on its own, this Grammar Guidebook 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 Workbook. This repetition solidifies the concepts, definitions, and examples in the student’s mind.

There are four Workbooks, one for each year. Each 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 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 The Grammar Guidebook.

Use Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind to teach English grammar thoroughly, effectively, and with confidence—no matter what your background or experience!
