When Jim Halverson began teaching, he quickly realized that most students found work on grammar to be monotonous and boring. As a result, they had difficulty retaining the concepts that they studied. He soon began writing his own lessons and exercises, ones that students found engaging and fun. In this book he uses the techniques that worked so well for him in his own teaching. Rather than a dry presentation of concepts, the students study models and discover the rules for themselves. The exercises that follow are then ongoing humorous stories rather than disconnected sets of sentences, and the reviews of the concepts are puzzles and mazes. These fifteen units cover a variety of concepts including capitalization, the use of commas and quotation marks, sentence fragments, run-on sentences, and the correct use of the perfect tenses.
