      Would you please share with your members information about the (totally free) KISS Approach to teaching grammar? Unlike every other approach, KISS begins by teaching students to identify subjects, verb, adjectives, adverbs and prepositional phrases in sentences that they actually read and write. It then adds grammatical constructions until students can intelligently discuss the function, punctuation, style, and logic of almost any word in any sentence. You’ll find that KISS exercises are based on real sentences from students’ writing and from stories, poems, etc. that they might read.
      Homeschoolers have an advantage over public schools. Public schools cannot spread a multi-year curriculum design (like KISS) over several years. Many homeschoolers are already doing so with KISS.
      The KISS homepage is at KISSGrammar.org. You will probably be most interested in the Printable Workbooks page at http://home.pct.edu/~evavra/kiss/wb/PBooks/index.htm There you will find free MSWord workbooks that include instructional material and exercises. As a companion to each workbook there is an “AK” analysis keys book for teachers. There are also two discussion groups for KISS. See:
      I thank you for your time.
