Jensen’s Grammar lessons and exercises were built with three concepts in mind. First, spaced repetition is the key to learning; hence, there is review in every lesson. Second, the information is given incrementally; that is, the material comes in a natural progression of detail and concept interwoven so as to move you along with something new each lesson while fitting it in with the material previously learned and practiced. Third, the sentences in the exercises will generally set a scene or describe an action. Thus, they are usually more interesting reading in themselves instead of the random sentences in exercises found in most grammar texts.

Students completing this course will learn valuable skills.

  • how to create, place, and punctuate relative clauses in order to write more sophisticated sentences
  • a simple procedure to reduce the number of words in a sentence to help you search for subjects and verbs
  • how to use a simple chart that unlocks the mystery of differentiating the major parts of speech
  • how to use the words and structures you are being taught in your own sentences
  • understanding the fundamentals of grammar in such a way that you will not forget them but will use them effectively
  • Recommended Grade Level: 9-12, 1 Year / 1 English Credit

    This curriculum is straightforward and to the point. Which was perfect for my highschooler. Looking forward to using it again with my upcoming 8th grader.
    Good

    My children found this curriculum straightforward and to the point. It is repetitive, but they didn't mind it.
    Okay

    I can see how this curriculum could work for other students, but daughter has not really enjoyed it. The lessons build on each other, which can be a great thing for mastery, but it just feels too repetitive. We are switching to a different curriculum mid-year.
    Great

    Had my High School daughter take this to refresh on grammar. I like how short and to the point the book is.
    my 8th & 10th grader found it boring
    Review by
    Its a great basic grammar curriculum. But it is very repetitive and it became difficult to get them to complete assignments
    Not what I was hoping for
    Review by
    I purchased this book for some grammar review for my two High School students. There was a lot of repetition which is usually good, but this was too much. My students got very tired of writing sentences/paragraphs according to a specific order using the parts of speech that the author picked. As far as a review for grammar, it was okay but not engaging enough for me to use it again with my other kids. We will look for something else.
    Not the best

    Ok.

    Not for us
    Review by
    Jensen's Grammar is an effective program, but it was not for our family. My daughter was really struggling to not be bored and to understand how it teaches. We found the videos a little dry as well.
