THE SCOOP ON GOOD GRAMMAR
By Margie Blumberg
AN ILLUSTRATED GRAMMAR BOOK
The Scoop on Good Grammar is an essential reference for ages 12 and up, featuring fun facts, examples, practice questions, and quizzes throughout. The Scoop answers questions about sentences and sentence fragments, the eight parts of speech (i.e., nouns, pronouns, prepositions, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, interjections, and conjunctions), and punctuation marks. The Scoop features beautiful photos and illustrations to make learning grammar fun!
In The Scoop on Good Grammar, each chapter focuses on a particular aspect of culture: exploration, art and invention, food, sports, classic movies and TV, poetry, and travel.
Pairing English grammar rules with cultural touchstones—from baseball to Mount Rushmore—makes learning fun!
The book opens with the chapter on exploration—with the landing on the Moon. Lesson one provides an important overview of the sentence—from high above Earth—to help readers see the big picture: Like each astronaut on a mission, every word in a sentence serves a function. These functions are called the parts of speech. There are eight of them: nouns, pronouns, prepositions, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, interjections, and conjunctions.
And with that information in hand—followed by definitions, examples, a practice question, and a quiz—the reader is ready to take off into a world of discovery!
Is it "between you and me" or "between you and I"? Is it "really sweet" or "real sweet"? Answers to these questions—and many, many more—are in The Scoop!
