about this item

So many grammar and punctuation guides are written for adults and are too complex for students. They don't communicate the basics of good grammar in a way that kids can easily grasp and integrate into their own writing. The Absolutely Essential Grammar Guide offers the perfect solution. Filled with straightforward language, lots of easy-to-understand examples, and straight-to-the-point guidance, this handbook was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of your students.

This fantastic guide covers all of the basics of good writing and grammar, including:
  • correct use of punctuation,
  • rules of capitalization,
  • definitions and correct use of the parts of speech,
  • definitions and examples of parts and types of sentences,
  • common grammar errors and how to avoid them, and
  • lots of helpful reference materials.
This guide is excellent for helping students improve their writing skills. Once students have their ideas on paper, it's time to go through the written piece and make sure the grammar is correct. The Grammar Guide is the perfect tool for this job. Time and time again, your students will reach for this book when they can't remember what punctuation to use, when to capitalize, or how to properly use a part of speech.

This basic guide to grammar will supplement any language program and help students achieve a better understanding of the many rules that apply to correct language usage.
