Easy Grammar
Easy Grammar Plus
Wanda Phillips
After trying multiple grammar programs with mixed results, we found Easy Grammar. This program is unique because it starts with prepositions. After crossing out prepositional phrases, finding subjects, verbs, direct objects, etc., becomes much easier. For us, this program succeeded where others had not. The teacher's book has reproducible student pages (great for multiple children), but a student workbook is also available.

Writers Inc: A Student Handbook for Writing and Learning
Patrick Sebranek
The latest information on writing, thinking, and learning. Contents include: Writing Process, Style and Form, Searching and Researching, Special Forms of Writing, Reading and Learning, Speaking and Thinking, Punctuation and Grammar, Tables and Maps. Transitions can be difficult and not just from one paragraph to another. The shift from high school or work experience to college is often intimidating, but it's easier when you pack a reference work that knows the meaning of morph and ad hoc, when to use a semicolon, how to write essays and résumés, and the latitude of Afghanistan. With the periodic table, world maps, weights and measures, rules of grammar, and a glossary of college terms, this is a first-year friend you can count on during all-nighters before midterms.
