The importance of the spoken and written word in Christian culture cannot be overestimated. Our Mother Tongue dishes up examples and exercises that go beyond stereotypical, contrived sentences created merely to illustrate a point, relying instead on selections from Scripture and great English literature to instruct students with regard to content, style, and structure. In addition to a helpful format that highlights key definitions, punctuation issues, and important concepts, short historical sidebars tell the fascinating story of the development of English.
Our Mother Tongue also teaches the traditional and extremely helpful exercise of sentence diagramming, which trains students to quickly analyze the purpose and structure of any sentence. The grammatical explanations, the logic of diagrams, and the rhetoric of her examples blend with complementary emphases to create an important classical and Christian text. Daily lesson plans included!
