Incredible Value: Many teachers have gone to teacher supply stores looking for grammar books because they need some worksheets to help their students with a certain skill. They spend $9.95 on a workbook and may use only three or four worksheets from it. Then they do it again for another skill, then another. Over the course of a few years, they’ve spent a small fortune just for a few worksheets that only cover a few skills. With Standards Based Grammar you get almost TWO HUNDRED worksheets covering over twenty-five standards. You’ll never buy another supplement again. Easy Lesson Plan: Most elementary school teachers teach over thirty lessons a week. You DON’T need another subject that requires lesson planning. With Standards Based Grammar you have hundreds of lesson plans ready to go. Each worksheet has the skill and lesson at the top of the page. Most lessons require just a few minutes of review, and you’re ready to go. The lessons on each page also serve as an excellent review when students need to review certain skills. Improved Test Scores: Every worksheet in Standards Based Grammar has been tested in the classroom. The worksheets have been written and rewritten for maximum effectiveness. The advantage of Standards Based Grammar is unmistakable. Language scores improve with Standards Based Grammar. Several classrooms surveyed have shown growth in language tests scores of over 12%. Many students are receiving perfect scores in language. Even some Title 1 students are scoring in the seventieth and eightieth percentiles. English Language Learners: Clearly, beginning language learners need intensive practice with English to achieve the basics of the English language. Many English learners pick up just enough English to survive. Many teachers are tricked into believing that, just because the child can speak English, he/she does not need English language instruction. Most states require that students receive daily instruction in English until they achieve Fluent English Proficiency (FEP). While many English learners acquire enough English proficiency to achieve survival status, they become stuck below (FEP) because they can “get by” with their current English abilities. Standards Based Grammar forces them to acquire a deeper understanding of the English language. Furthermore, Standards Based Grammar helps the teacher keep track of the skills they are learning. NO child sneaks through the year without the teacher being aware of his/her abilities. Classrooms with predominately ELL students have also shown dramatic results with students achieving FEP status on state tests. What About My District’s Language Arts Program? Many district language arts programs are one-size-fits-all programs. They combine reading, writing, grammar, language, and oral language skills into one program. In addition, they try to teach ELL, high functioning, middle functioning, and low functioning students all at once. Using these programs, grammar is taught side-by-side with each reading unit. What if you don’t teach every story in your district’s reading program? What if you teach a grammar concept using the ONE worksheet they give you, and your students still need more practice? How do you know your students are mastering every grammar skill required on state tests? There is simply too much to monitor with these programs. Standards Based Grammar gives you confidence that every skill is being taught effectively. At the very least, you can use Standards Based Grammar along side your current language arts program to guarantee the success of your students.
I have a master's degree in education. Throughout my 20+ year teaching career, I've taught everything from 3rd through 11th grade. I've seen where young writers begin and where they emerge as college level writers. My curriculum can help teachers of single grade levels take their students to the next level, or it can help home school parents take their students from the paragraph to the multi-page research report. I've given more than a hundred workshops since writing my first book in 2005. Thank you for visiting my site.
