Paul Battles is a homeschooling parent and a Professor of English at Hanover College. He’s written a book entitled, Teach Yourself Grammar. Teach Yourself Grammar explains grammar in a way that’s easy to understand and remember. You won’t just learn a bunch of rules — you’ll understand the underlying principles, and why some rules do (and do not) work.
The book is divided into thirty short chapters that can be read in a single sitting. Each chapter contains explanations, key terms, questions, and exercises. There are 27 lessons and 3 unit reviews. The chapters include –
Words – Nouns; Adjectives and Determiners; Verbs; Pronouns, and more
Phrases – Adjective, adverb, and Propositional Phrases; Noun Phrases; Verb Phrase Structure; Infinite Phrases, and more
Clauses – Content Clauses; Relative Clauses; Punctuation; Kinds of Style, and more
FYI – you can buy the book on Amazon.com.
In addition, there is an accompanying website, teachyourselfgrammar.wordpress.com which has lots of FREE resources for homeschoolers, including answers to all of the questions in the book.
So for just $11.99 for the paperback book, or $6.99 for the e-book – you have a GREAT grammar curriculum. What a deal!
