    This workbook, formerly titled English the Easy Way is full of examples and review exercises to teach or refresh memory in different areas of English. Although the book was written specifically for adult students who want an all-inclusive self-help program in English, the easy-to-read text and step-by-step explanations and examples make it accessible to much younger students. The book builds upon itself, starting with complete sentences and moving on to different tenses, parts of speech, descriptive words and phrases, linking verbs, word agreement, pronouns, balanced sentences, punctuation, the different formats of different styles of writing, word usage, and much more. A chapter on spelling is included with a large list of commonly misspelled words, as is a chapter on vocabulary with tips on how using more exciting or precise words leads to better writing. Instruction is given in a conversational tone, with plenty of examples of correct English. While describing and giving examples of English concepts in an easy to understand way, the book provides review exercises to practice those skills and actually use the rules being taught. Several small (5-10 questions) practice sections are included in each chapter where students complete sentences, fill in blanks, identify different elements of writings, and more to get a hands-on review of the information given. After reviewing several topics, the book provides a cumulative review, with a total of four cumulative reviews and one final review in the book. These tests include multiple-choice questions and exercises where students must identify English aspects in writings or pick the correct way to finish a sentence. After each cumulative review is a skills assessment page that shows students which skills they did well in and which ones need more attention. The easy to follow explanations and examples of terms throughout the book will make it easy for students to understand various elements of English. All of the answers to the practice sections and tests are included. This is a great source for independent learning about English, although it is clearly a review or supplement and not a complete curriculum. The book is perfect for an overall review of English concepts and is especially useful to ensure coverage and knowledge of important English topics before standardized or college testing. 292 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    A very rigorous and complete 1-year course in grammar (parts of speech, word functions, punctuation, sentence structure and patterns).  Now reprinted by Master Books, each lesson features plenty of white space and the front of the book contains a “Suggested Daily Schedule” with assignments listed for five days per week. Lessons are 1-2 pages of reading followed by 1-2 pages of exericises for practice. Fifteen tests are also provided, with an A and B form for each in case any tests need to be retaken. These are scheduled throughout the year, though not at regular intervals. Although designed to be self-instructional, particularly when used with the DVD (as is assumed in the schedule), some teacher help may be required.  This book would be an excellent follow-up to Easy Grammar or Journey to Grammar Land, as it covers grammar at a college level!  Answer keys to exercises and tests are found in the back of the book. Perfect-bound, 3-hole punched with perforated pages. Reproducible for one family or a small class (10 students or less).

    If the Wordsmith Apprentice is the junior version of Wordsmith, then the Wordsmith Craftsman is the senior. Written for the young adult, it concentrates on making sure older students have the necessary communication and writing skills for their adult lives, no matter what occupation they enter. In three parts it covers the various aspects of writing they will need "out in the real world." In Part One, "Writing Every Day," taking notes, writing letters, constructing summaries and composing business reports are covered. Part Two, "Language Power" includes paragraphs, writing techniques, and developing a personal writing style. This all builds up to the grand finale, "The Essay," which covers topics, structure, and the step-by-step writing. Different types of essays are practiced: expository, narrative, descriptive, and persuasive. Answers are printed in the back of the book for some of exercises. This workbook has been revised and now includes updated information regarding e-mail communication and Internet research, additional examples, a brief discussion of research papers, and an added section on critical writing (reviews and critical essays). Very complete and informative, this is ideal for rounding out a high school writing program. - Jess

    In this fast-paced world, not everyone has time to read long explanations, and writers must be able to write concise, informative, and easy-to-read paragraphs. Recommended by the Institute for Excellence in Writing, this book shares everything you need to know about writing effective paragraphs. In an organized, straight-to-the-point way, it first describes paragraphs in general, telling about the history, definition, function, length, development, topic sentence, unity, coherence, and organizing of paragraphs. Then the majority of the book explains and offers examples for 30 distinct types of paragraphs (chronological, descriptive, spatial, analogy, comparison, opinion, narrative, introductory, etc.). For each type of paragraph, a chapter describes the paragraph, tells when it is best used, gives a great example of that style of paragraph, analyzes the example paragraph, and gives a number of helpful tips for writing the featured type of paragraph. This is a great reference for seeing how to write different paragraphs and perfect for showing students that there is more to paragraphs than just a topic sentence and supporting details. 186 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    "Modeling Writing after Great Works of World Literature Vol. 1." If you're learning to write, why not learn from the best? It's a great concept that's well-implemented in this new writing offering by Jill J. Dixon, B.S. Ed., M.Ed. Focusing on descriptive writing, Jill has chosen some of the best literary passages as models, including excerpts from:

    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Describing an Object)

    A Christmas Carol (Describing a Place)

    Robinson Crusoe (Describing a Character)

    Wind in the Willows (Writing a Dialogue)

    "Gift of the Magi" (Writing a Short Story)

    "Ants and the Grasshopper" and "Shepherd's Boy and the Wolf" (Writing a Fable)

    "Paul Revere's Ride (Writing Poetry - Ballad or Narrative)

    Each of these nine units is broken into ten 15-to-45-minute daily lessons - though Jill cautions not to progress too quickly if a child has not mastered a skill. Objectives for each day are asterisked and should be read by the teacher before beginning each unit. Since lessons are addressed directly to the student, the program will require minimal teacher time in actually completing each lesson. You will need to do some preparatory instruction, dictation (once per unit), and check work completed. Each unit begins with an excerpt from a "classic", includes a good amount of grammar (parts of speech) instruction, some mechanics, has the student find another good example of the genre being studied (and doing some comparative / grammatical analysis), and culminates with student writing and proofreading. Every unit also includes a dictation exercise from the included (or another) classic excerpt. The student is then to check his result against the written copy. Units are systematic, instruction is clear, and the whole course is well-organized and ready to pick up and go. Jill has included several helps and references also, in the back of the volume. The first is a sheet on "The Characteristics that Make the Best Writing The Best". This is used as the basis for discussion of supplied and found excerpts. A proofreading checklist is included to encourage and help with self-editing. For the parent is a helpful sheet on grading criteria. My only dispute with this is the point (out of five) given for having a "topic sentence at the beginning and a concluding sentence at the end of each paragraph". Just skimming the excerpts included confirm much "great" writing is not "formula" writing. I agree that a beginning writer may need to start out this way - but it makes for boring writing if you insist each paragraph be structured so. Additional Literary Passages for Modeling Writing are included and listed by genre so that you can continue or reuse these lessons again and again with different literature, if desired. For the teacher and student is a How to Write Guide that takes you through the steps for each type of writing. And, lastly, a key to the parts of speech exercises in included for you. All in all, there is a fair amount of grammar and mechanics instruction included in this volume in the context of writing and proofreading, though the author suggests supplementing with Easy Grammar, Daily Grams, Editor in Chief or Great Editing Adventures if you feel you need more specific or intensive instruction. Other recommended materials are a dictionary and thesaurus for each student. A writing or grammar handbook would also be helpful - especially if your skills are a little rusty. Permission to reproduce is given for the excerpts and the proofreading checklist. These are the only consumable components, and each student will need his own. All in all, this program looks like a well-organized, easy to use, effective writing program that I'm personally eager to try!
