This textbook can be used in grades 4 to 6. A language study done in three parts with composition woven throughout, this text begins with words, moves to simple sentences and later to complex sentences, easing the child into grammar along the way. The eight parts of speech are studied as well as punctuation.
The two English Grammar volumes written by the 19th century educator Thomas W. Harvey, provided the framework for classic education in this country, along with McGuffey's Readers. In addition to bringing these classics back into print, and revising them only slightly for modern audiences, Mott Media has added keys which contain the answers to the exercises in both volumes. These compact volumes cannot be matched for the thoroughness with which they treat every aspect of English grammar.
