I have been using Grammar and Communication Course as an education tool in English/American grammar during my English Language lessons for almost thirty years.
During this time I have come to rely on the course as a very stable part of my yearly planning in 6th class regarding the basic knowledge of grammar.
The text is confrontable, readable with large clear drawings and sketches which help children to get the point of a subject, which from time to time can be considered to be "hard."
At the International School where I teach English Language we have achieved sound and lasting examination results year after year. This contributes not only to a positive conclusion of a basic education but also to the further studies of the graduating pupils.
It is not the only material available in this particular area by any means, and I have piloted many during my years, but it is the one course which covers ALL basic knowledge with an appropriate worksheet and drills that children can complete and experience ; "feel good about grammar".
That result is very worthwhile.
