The Workout That Brings Mastery in Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics

Exercises in English is the perfect teaching tool for educators who want their students to be educationally fit and READY—ready to communicate effectively when writing or speaking, ready for everyday language arts tasks, ready for accelerated English-language learning, and ready for assessment. Here are some ways that a workout with Exercises in English helps students become READY for any language arts task that they encounter:

Students are provided with a multitude of exercises on each page. With so many opportunities for learning, “practice makes perfect” is achievable!
Success comes with systematic instruction. Each new grammar, usage, or mechanics concept is clearly explained through examples and definitions.
GUM scores increase as students are assessed and master their work with sentences, verbal agreement, and punctuation.
When students diagram sentences, they create visual representations of their learning—they can actually see how words work together to make correctly constructed sentences.
With six books of varying levels and a multitude of lessons in each book, students are provided with learning opportunities that last a full school year and beyond.

Inside Exercises in English

Focused skills are practiced in a variety of ways.
Level of difficulty increases as students complete each section of a page.
Clear definitions and numerous examples guide instruction.

Comprehensive reviews allow for classroom assessment or preparation for standardized tests.

Sentence diagramming helps students better understand and remember concepts.

Leveled books allow for differentiated instruction. Determine which books to use based on individual student achievement rather than grade level.

Handbook of Terms invites all learners to refresh and expand their knowledge.

Mastery and More
When teachers and students use Exercises in English, they receive more than any other language arts workout offers.

Teachers receive MORE with

  • easy-to-grade exercises that are always in multiples of five.
  • perforated pages for easy grading and portfolio storage.
  • embedded answers that make correcting a breeze.

Students receive MORE with

  • grammar, mechanics, and usage lessons that support Voyages in English.
  • cross-curricular content for reinforcement and enrichment in social studies and science.
  • character-education lessons with positive role models as examples.
  • practice in context for authentic writing opportunities and self-assessment.

Comprehensive Scope and Sequence
Review the Scope and Sequence on pages T7–T11 to note how skill instruction is scaffolded across levels. Use the level or levels that best meet your students’ needs.

Exercises in English, 2008

  • Grammar is arranged in the same order as in Voyages, 2006, allowing students to work through the books simultaneously.
  • Each grammar section in Voyages is supported by at least one lesson in Exercises.
  • Some grammar sections in Voyages are supported by two or more lessons in Exercises. For example, Section 1.6 of Voyages, Grade 6, treats nouns used as objects. This section is supported by three lessons in Exercises that treat separately nouns used as direct objects, nouns used as indirect objects, and nouns used as objects of prepositions. This gives students extra practice in discrete grammar points.
  • The grammar explanations in Exercises were rewritten to match those in Voyages, making it easy to move back and forth between books.
  • An entire chapter of diagramming was added to Exercises to match that in Voyages. (This replaces the old Research Skills section. Research skills are taught in Voyages as part of the writing process, not as part of the grammar.)
  • The Handbook of Terms for each level was rewritten to match that of Voyages.
  • The TE front matter now contains a correlation of Exercises with the appropriate grade level of Voyages. (This replaces the old Sentence Analysis section.)

Features that were retained from the old Exercises include:

  • Each exercise is based on grade-level science, social studies, or language arts content.
  • The items in each exercise are divisible by 5 for easy grading.
  • Character education lessons appear throughout each book.
  • Section reviews provide regular assessment.
  • Writing in context and self-assessment allow students to practice what they learn and to evaluate their own work.
  • The TE contains overprinted answers.
  • The TE front matter contains a scope and sequence chart of the entire program.
