This book gives teachers access to differentiated lesson plans and activities they need to guide students through the intricacies of everyday grammar. Resources in this book are aligned to Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy. Video resources are from PBS LearningMedia’s “No Nonsense Grammar” series. The content in this book can be used in grades 4-8, with some material also usable in high school.
The information about compound sentences is incorrect. It makes it seem as if two independent clauses can be joined by a comma subordinate conjunction; however that is not the case. The subordinate conjunction “because” is not the same as using a coordinating conjunction such as the FANBOYS (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so). Thus, a novice grammar teacher may not know the difference, and these materials are incorrect.
