Summary: This brief text offers basic coverage of grammar and punctuation through a unique focus on sentence diagramming that enables students to visualize and understand how words connect. Grammar to Go can serve as a basal text or as a supplement for courses with an emphasis on learning basic grammar and punctuation skills.

In response to reviewer feedback, the Second Edition offers a wide range of new material to help students hone their skills--including more co ...show moreverage of word choices, new writing exercises in every chapter, answers in the back for selected exercises, updated sample sentences that make them more relevant to students level of grammar sophistication, and a guide to diagramming in the Instructor's Manual.

  • Process approach: Unlike a handbook, this book helps students understand how language works, emphasizing understanding over memorization. As they master the skills of each level of grammar, the concepts and patterns become automatic. Students move incrementally from the simplest sentence patterns to more complex grammatical topics.
  • Teaches the diagram frame: The authors teach students how to "see" the various parts of the sentence through the use of diagramming. Students begin to understand words based on their position and function on the diagram frame, enabling them to understand how words relate and connect.
  • Hones critical thinking skills: The text involves students in the process of learning the rules, allowing them to discover them by reasoning and evaluating as they construct sentences within particular patterns.
  • Incorporates memorization in context: Instead of having students memorize a long list at once--parts of speech for example--students memorize what they need at appropriate times and bring it into the process.
  • Uses student-friendly layout: The text separates "quick tips," parts of speech, and common misunderstandings into easy-to-read boxes for quick reference throughout the text.
  • Offers simple explanations at a college level: The friendly and engaging language avoids unnecessarily foreboding vocabulary and terminology while not "dumbing down" the content.
  • Provides ample practice: Each new concept is reinforced with examples and exercises following the explanations. Additional review and practice appear at the end of each chapter.
