Timberdoodle's review Learn more
 
Longtime Timberdoodle patrons know about our aversion to grammar. But disliking a subject will not make it go away, nor will it diminish its importance. As your children reach junior and senior high school, a working grasp of grammar becomes more crucial. But if your children find studying grammar mildly loathsome then you will want a program that is complete, but as painless as possible. I think Jensen's Grammar is it.

With Jensen's Grammar you get solid instruction with logically spaced repetition for long-term retention. Incremental introduction of information insures success and prevents the 'I'm overwhelmed' meltdowns. Written for grades 7 - 12, your child will learn handy information like: testing for prepositions and their phrases, two letters that identify almost all adverbs, the trick that fixes correct usage of lie and lay, a quick way to tell linking from active verbs, and a simple procedure to reduce the number of words in a sentence to help you search for subjects and verbs.

Plus the more standard material like how to make subjects and verbs agree, how to make plurals correctly, how modifiers can always be identified and much more. With 75 lessons, Jensen's Grammar can be completed in one year. Everything you need is included: lessons, exercises, tests, answers and teaching helps. The softbound book is copyrighted but the author has given permission to photocopy the tests. If you want multiple children to use the book, they will need to write their answers on a separate sheet of paper. We think that you will find that Jensen's Grammar presents the fundamentals of grammar in such a way that your children will not forget them. For Grades 7 - 12. This book is a bit harder than Easy Grammar and is best suited for an advanced student. Includes separate 64-page test and answer book.

Solid and Good May 31, 2012
Reviewer: alotofgewgaws  
My 9th grader used Jensen's along with Easy Grammar for 9th grade. Are both necessary? No, but I want him to be prepared for the PSAT and SAT. The majority of the book he completed without my help. I have to admit, I find many of the sections challenging. Of course that's good. I want my children to have a firm grasp on grammar and its usage. I would recommend this book to any high school student or adult.

Jensen's Grammar December 4, 2009
Reviewer: Cheri S. from Mississippi, United States  
My  two oldest boys both used this program along with Jensen's Punctuation in their high school years.  Both studied the books on their own.  Both scored over 30 on the English section of the ACT and were placed in Honor's English in college.  I intend to use it with all my children.

Tedious and hard to understand November 4, 2008
Reviewer: Holly W. from Oldtown, ID  
My son tried this and found it to be tedious and hard to understand.  I look for material that is good for self-study and this didn't fit for us.
