    For centuries, corn has been a staple of Mayan life. Corn provides nourishment, and it can be sold to purchase necessities. This book tells the story of a Mayan family living in the Yucatan, struggling to plant and harvest the corn they need to survive. Twelve-year-old Tigre must shoulder the burden, because his father is badly injured and his mother and grandmother cannot do all the work on their own. This story is rich in Mayan folklore and customs, and is enhanced with beautiful charcoal illustrations. A glossary of Spanish, Maya, and Mexican words used in the text is located in the back. A Newbery Honor Book. By Dorothy Rhoads. 88 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    This book provides a straightforward approach to basic English grammar and how to apply that grammar to writing skills. There are 40 lessons, each with four pages featuring practice with four different skills: parts of speech, mechanics, diagramming and proofreading. In the first part of each lesson, students complete exercises such as identifying the parts of speech in sentences, choosing the correct parts of speech, and linking parts of speech with others, (i.e. - circling an adjective and then drawing an arrow to the word it describes, etc.). In the mechanics section of each lesson, students learn a rule or common error associated with the part of speech just learned. Examples of exercises include choosing the correct form of words, identifying incorrect usage of words, correcting punctuation, improving poorly written sentences, and more. The third section of each lesson focuses on diagramming. As students work through the book, they will begin by diagramming two or three word sentences and work their way up to very complicated ones. Sometimes students will have to correct the sentences before they diagram them. The final section on proofreading contains a passage that students must edit, with errors which typically correspond to topics covered in the featured lesson. At the beginning of the book the instructions tell students the number of errors in each sentence, later changing to the number of errors found in the whole passage, and by the end of the book students are expected to find all the errors without any tips. After every ten lessons in the book, there is a two-page review section. This section follows the same format as the lessons but includes content from the previous ten lessons to make sure students are retaining what they've learned. The end of the book holds a glossary of grammar terms and answer key. While the early exercises in the book are relatively simple and may be appropriate for older elementary students, later exercises are more complex - at more of a high school level. We've changed the recommended grade level to 7-12 due to some irreverent and slightly edgy content that is more appropriate for older students (slang like "barf" and other attention-getting "gross" content, humorous mentions of actresses with revealing dresses, etc.). Not reproducible. ~ Rachel S.

    Sentence structure, diagramming subjects and predicates, helping verbs and verb phrases and irregular verbs. Nouns as subjects, direct objects and predicate nominatives are studied. Seventh grade students also study proper, possessive, and predicate adjectives and prepositions, interjections, and conjunctions and how to use them properly in sentence structure. Students learn to use colons, semicolons, apostrophes, quotation marks, parentheses, dashes and hyphens effectively in sentences. They read a chosen novel, write a daily journal as they read the novel and complete a final review of the novel. They complete this process several times throughout the year with different types of literary works: novels, short stories and poetry. Spelling, vocabulary and grammar are strengthened.

       Eagerly anticipated for years, Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind is a sequel to Susan Wise Bauer’s First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind. For those wanting a definitive English grammar that will cover all aspects of this (troublesome) language and who are willing to devote the time and energy necessary for mastery, this program will not disappoint. It provides a user-friendly, comprehensive, and thorough roadmap through all the nooks and crannies of basic grammar, usage, and mechanics and into advanced English skills (detailed analysis of complex sentence structure). The author confidently states, “A student completing four years of this program will have all the skills needed for the study of advanced rhetoric – persuasive and sophisticated writing.” I believe it.

      The series is built on three guiding principles, the elements of classical language learning. First, students need to understand and memorize the rules of language. Next, they need meaningful and valuable examples of every rule and principle. And finally, they need to practice in order to incorporate these rules and principles deeply into their oral and written communication skills. In keeping with its classical roots, this program provides rules and definitions with lots of opportunity to memorize them along with excellent examples and plenteous exercises for mastery. For the first level in the series, there are four program components– the Comprehensive Handbook of Rules and Core Instructor Text (both non-consumable), Student Workbook 1 (consumable) and the Answer Key for Student Workbook 1 (non-consumable). We expect Student Workbooks and Answer Keys for each of three subsequent years.

      Serving as both a resource and a reference to be used each year of the four-year series, the small-ish (7” x 8.25”) Comprehensive Handbook of Rules is indeed both comprehensive and a rule book. It contains all the principles that govern the English language as well as examples of each. Included are parts of speech, sentences, parts of sentences, dialogue and quotations, capitalization (summary of rules), punctuations, documentation (Turabian method), and sample conjugations. To give you an idea of the scope, nouns are covered thus: types, capitalization rules, gender, plural formation, noun imposters, and nouns that serve as other parts of speech. Each is clearly illustrated by examples that come from great literature (often classic but sometimes contemporary). In the verb section, there is a helpful five-page verb summary chart that provides active and passive formation with examples for four verb tenses (indicative, modal, imperative, and subjunctive). An index is provided (thankfully). Although a key component of the Grammar for the WTM series, it could easily be used as a reference by anyone wanting a solid, definitive English grammar resource.

      The Core Instructor Text is the scripted teacher’s book for the entire four years. All rules and examples as well as teaching notes explaining the ambiguities and difficulties of each grammatical construct are built into student-teacher dialogues. There are question/answer dialogues for 130 lessons. Including reviews, the expectation is lessons on 4 days a week for 36 weeks. It helps to have an understanding of classical methodology to appreciate what is here. Essentially, each of the lessons contains a single theme that will be repeated in each of the program’s four years. The idea is that at first concepts will be imperfectly grasped but through repetition and through four years of exercises, mastery of both concept and applications will be perfected. The instruction is done through teacher-student dialogues. That means a significant time investment will need to be made by the teacher (I’m guessing 15-20 minutes per lesson) for each of the four years. While this may seem a bit daunting, remember that everything is scripted (i.e. provided for you) with little to no teacher prep and that you will also gain familiarity with the dialogues as you progress through the years.

      The Core Instructor Text interacts with the Student Workbook. Whenever a rule, definition, information, or a sample sentence is needed as part of the teacher-student dialogue, it is provided in the Student Workbook (SW). The SW also provides all the exercises that the student is expected to complete. There is variety in these exercises – some are underlining and labeling, some are diagramming, some require the student to construct his own new sentences. Answers to these exercises are provided in the Student Workbook Answer Key. The key contains reproduced exercises with answers as well as detailed notes that explain or clarify the answers. Students are encouraged to check their own work much of the time and to discuss any discrepancies they find between the answers and their own work.

      Review is built into the program in several ways. Routinely, as part of daily dialogues rule/definition content from previous dialogs is repeated/reviewed. Additionally, regular exercise reviews are built into the courses. Every three weeks the student lesson provides six exercises that review what was covered in the previous three weeks. Toward the end of each Workbook (i.e. Lesson 27), the reviews double (twelve exercises) and become cumulative (back to the beginning of the course). These reviews are completed over the course of the week with every fourth week as a review week. There are no other formal assessments.

      The general idea of this series is unusual. Teacher dialogue is identical from year to year. Difficulty of the exercises increases over the course of the year (particularly after Week 20) and students may find it difficult to complete Workbook 1 in a single year. However, exercises from year to year are comparable in difficulty. Subsequent years can be completed more efficiently than Year 1 due to familiarity with the rules, definitions, and exercise expectations. This means that a student can start on Workbook 3 (if others in the class or your homeschool are in the third Workbook). However, they are strongly encouraged to go back and complete the first two workbooks. Mastery/proficiency is based on four years of interacting with the material.

      Many of us have wondered what Ms. Bauer’s approach to Grammar would be. Thoroughly classical and rigorous, yet user-friendly; this program steps into the void and will be welcomed.
