This is a teaching text set up in 10-minute, daily lessons like other EGUS texts. However, the concepts presented include both basic and more complex rules for capitalization, punctuation, and grammar. Some concepts, such as catenative verbs, zero articles, and modal idioms, are introduced, but mastery is not required. A complete index for quick referencing is included.
A section—"Beyond Easy Grammar"—provides students with grammar’s 4 aspects: orthography, syntax, etymology, and prosody. (No written work is required in this section.) Dr. Phillips believes that this is a "must" for all high school seniors; they will want to take this text to college or to the work place as a resource. In fact, college professors may want students to obtain this text.
