Winston Grammar - For Structured and Relaxed Homeschoolers
(Greenwich, OH USA)
Winston Grammar is a good program in my opinion. Here are some good features:
1. User friendly for both teacher and student.
2. Simple page layout.
3. Thorough course covering everything you need to know about grammar and sentence structure.
4. Built-in review.
I like a system with low teacher preparation. I like to be able to pick something up and read it over quickly and then teach it to my child. Winston Grammar does that. The teacher instructions are simple and easy to follow. They give you enough information, but not too much. You also get the answers which is helpful!
The only drawback I would have is that if a child didn't really "get it" when they did the worksheet and got a lot of sentences incorrect, there isn't really a built-in way to reinforce the concepts again. You just move on to the next figure of speech. So you will need to possibly make some extra copies so that if your child needs some extra review, you will have a blank page to use.
Winston Grammar is good for those who like the whole curriculum approach, but can also be used by those who enjoy a more relaxed approach. You can pick up and reinforce certain concepts or you can go through the entire course of 30 lessons.
