How a Lesson Works
All level lessons include several parts:
- Notes pages (for both instructors and students)
- Exercise worksheets
Depending on the level, lessons may also include:
- Playing with Words activities
- Application & Enrichment activities
What Are Each of the Lesson Parts?
Lesson Notes provide instruction and examples for each topic.
Exercises A, B, and C give students plenty of practice in applying their new knowledge.
Playing with Words and Application & Enrichment activities provide weekly instruction and practice with functional writing skills.
Assessments are always open book and provide an accurate measure of proficiency.
In addition, some levels have Reinforcement pages provided outside of the lessons to keep skills sharp between levels.
What Does a Week Look Like?
Most Analytical Grammar lessons are set up in the same manner. The schedule is flexible so you can adapt it to match your student’s needs. You’ll determine the best pacing for your student as you progress through the program.
For each lesson, your student should at a minimum:
- Review the Lesson Notes
- Complete Exercise A
- Complete the Playing with Words or Application & Enrichment activity
- Take the Assessment
A schedule for completing one lesson a week looks like:
Things to Remember
- The program is designed to be student-paced. If a lesson feels overwhelming, consider splitting it into smaller parts. If your student feels confident, consider allowing them to skip the additional exercises and take the lesson Assessment.
- No lesson was designed to be completed in one day.
- Students review materials throughout, so mistakes will likely work themselves out as your student progresses.
