Homeschool Grammar Curriculum

Many parents (and teachers) have the impression that a study of grammar will improve a person's ability to write. And so they seek to put their children through the paces of rigorous grammar study.

While there are a few basic grammatical rules that every student needs to know (for example, rules about the correct use of commas and periods, or the placement of capital letters at the beginning of sentences), intensive grammar study is actually more valuable in areas other than writing. Its primary benefit comes in the form of language analysis (figuring out, for example, why a sentence fails to communicate accurately) and communication about language – a most valuable asset not only when you're discussing a piece of literature or a paper you're writing, but also when you're trying to learn a foreign language.

Intensive grammar for homeschoolers goes beyond identifying nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. It gets into such matters as relative and subordinate clauses, predicates and participles, gerunds, and infinitives.
