From the Back Cover: An understanding of grammar must be in place if we are to give our students a chance to become expert writers.  

But have you ever noticed how difficult it is to find a grammar, usage, and mechanics (GU&M) program that seems to have seriously considered both the developmental level of middle school students and the fact that there are other things to teach besides GU&M?  This puzzling situation certainly was a major force behind the creation of the Richbaub's Introduction to Middle School Grammar series.

Richbaub's, building on the basic grammar taught at the elementary level, completes students' foundation in rudimentary grammar.  The parts of speech are reviewed, sentence parts are learned, problematic topics in mechanics are covered, and then this knowledge is applied toward developing an understanding of proper usage and improved writing style.  

In addition, Richbaub's very clearly communicates to students that the study of grammar is all about writing, i.e. understanding the English language's patterns and components and practicing putting words together in the clearest and most effective way.  Throughout Richbaub's, students compose sentences employing various structures and grammatical components, and improving one's writing is the specific focus of several sections of the program.

Ultimately, Richbaub's provides a solid foundation in English grammar for middle school writers--a foundation of "formal training" upon which students can stand and stretch upward toward their fullest potentials as writers in the months and years ahead!
