This is a teaching text in a similar format to a Daily Grams book. That means the instruction is included throughout the 180 lessons, but there are a variety of questions every day, and always five sentences to work with at a time, designed to be done in about ten minutes a day. It also means that in this teacher's edition, the answers are included—but they're not on the facing page; instead they are in the back of the book. And like the other Easy Grammar books, the workbook pages are completely reproducible.
Each day's work will flow as follows:
Sentence 1: Capitalization teaching and application
Sentence 2: Punctuation teaching and application
Sentences 3 & 4: Grammar and other concept teaching and application
Sentence 5: Sentence Combining for improved writing skills
the material is presented in an easy, step-by-step approach
Concepts build upon themselves
Example: Students first learn the difference between an independent clause and a dependent clause. Using understanding of this concept, students learn construction of fragments, sentences, and run-on and the structure of compound and complex sentences. However, mastery of dependent and independent clauses first is vital to the ensuing concepts. Other concepts are taught in this manner throughout.
