Over 60 standards-based activities, plus diagnostic tests
By Jack Umstatter. Over 60 standards-based activities—including crosswords, magic squares, word searches, and riddles—teach and reinforce the components of grammar. Units cover parts of speech, parts of a sentence, sentences, usage, and mechanics, and adds a unit designed to prepare students for standardized tests. Three to five diagnostic tests precede each unit, followed by a series of lessons (each concluding with an insightful writing tip), review activities, and final tests for assessing progress.
