Item description for English in Blue & White: Lessons, Practice, and Resources in Grammar, Composition, and Literature by Chris Giles & John Powell...

Rather than using selected chapters or pages from many excellent resources, we wanted to be able to hand our students a book in the early days of September and say: 'Here. This is what we will learn this year. All of it -- front to back'. So, we wrote one. It includes sections on Parts of Speech, Sentences, Phrases, Clauses, Classifying Sentences, Mechanics, Composition, Literature, and glossaries of usage and poetic terms. Though it was written to be the core of the final year of middle school English, colleagues and associates have had great success using it with older students. There has long been debate about whether studying grammar improves proficiency in or increases enjoyment of reading, writing, and speaking -- our primary goals in middle-school English. We believe that showing the connection between grammar and good writing helps students say what they mean. - Taken from the Preface. Contents: Parts of Speech; Nouns; Pronouns; Adjectives; Verbs; Adverbs; Prepositions; Conjunctions; Interjections; Sentences; Elements of a Sentence; Parsing; Complements; Agreement; Phrases; Prepositional; Verbal; Appositive; Clauses; Independent; Subordinate; Classifying Sentences; Usage
