Description

The first developmentally appropriate middle school grammar program available, Richbaub's Introduction to Middle School Grammar, Books 1 and 2, is designed specifically for today's young student. Students respond to the straightforward and thoughtful concepts, puzzles, trivia, clever comics, and friendly voice because they were created specifically for their developmental level. Teachers love it because it is easy to incorporate into an established English curriculum. Richbaub's is also a true program that goes beyond brief concept summaries and exercises. Middle school educators face many obstacles when teaching grammar, including the complex task of fitting a meaningful grammar program within today's curricular demands. Sensitive to these hurdles and relying on his twenty-plus years of experience in middle school classrooms, author R. M. Gieson offers a sensible program to teach and review parts of speech, sentence parts, and tricky usage and mechanics rules while conveying that the study of grammar is about understanding the English language in order to learn to communicate clearly and effectively. A helpful appendix explains common stumbling points in teaching grammar, and a basic answer key, digital versions of the workbooks (for teaching via digital devices), full teacher's editions, and comprehensive test booklets are all available online at www.middleschoolgrammar.com.show more
