Beatrix Potter, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Robert Frost, Charles Dickens: all writers who capture our imaginations through rich characters and mesmerizing language. Could part of that brilliance be due to their 19th-century grammar instruction?! This class is the first semester of a year-long 19th Century Grammar Instruction Series.

I will admit- I love grammar. I love looking at language as a dance between words and punctuation, all working together with intent to create something beautiful. Too often, grammar is taught by teachers who dislike or have not found an approach that works for them. Therefore, students respond negatively and carry with them similar attitudes. I'd like the try to change that.
Occasional homework is assigned. Each lesson offers extra practice for learners to continue at home.
Handouts are provided 24 hours before each lesson.
In-class feedback is my preferred method of assessment in comparison to grades; however, if parent prefers, I am more than happy to supply a grade using either the A,B,C,D, F or Standard-based grading of 4,3,2,1 scales. Please request this at onset of the course! Learners do take 5 exams that are completed at home. These are "graded" and students receive individualized feedback. Common Core or Standards Alignment is available upon request.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
