Dear Fellow Writing Teacher, Homeschool Mom or Parent,

Has Grammar become that dreaded subject noone wants to tread on?  Most students dislike grammar because it has no relevance; it is a workbook with tons of exercises.  How BORING is that?

Pamela White and IEW have produced a fantastic grammar guide you can use to teach grammar rules in less than 15 minutes a day . . . from an interesting perspective.

Ms. White has re-written classic stories with embedded mistakes.  It is your student's mission to find & correct the mistakes.  And believe me, kids like correcting other people's mistakes a lot more than they want to correct their own.  So, set them on their mission of detecting all the errors in the stories.

But, I teach students at multi-age levels! 
Can I still use Fix-It for all those grade levels?

Don't worry!  Fix-It provides 5 stories from grade 3 to 12.  Each story is used for 32 week, 4 times a week.  In other words, you get 5 years worth of grammar in one book...really!    

Get your copy right now!

How does Fix-It work?

For each story, students rewrite a sentence a day, 4 days/week, correcting as many of the embedded grammatical errors as they can find. They also search for IEW dress-ups and sentence openers. Beneath the incorrect sentences are printed the corrections, and on the right column are listed the explanations of grammar, including the definition for a bolded vocabulary word.

In addition to the grammar rules in the Appendix, to the right of each passage are the rules for those sentences - so it's all spelled out - plus the vocabulary definition (I figured teachers would be like me and appreciate having the dictionary definition close at hand) and IEW style tools used.
 

 

As a BONUS, you get an ebook that prints the student versions.  Save yourself some time typing the stories yourself.  

What do you do with the BONUS Ebook?

Print the stories for your students' use or reformat if you want. In other words Fix-It  is super-flexible so you can use it for each of your kids' strengths or weaknesses.

Here's a great idea you can use with your kids......
I love the ebook which has all the stories in a Word format.  You can  put together a workbook for each of your kids.  Include lines for him to define his vocabulary words on one side of his workbook.  On the facing page he can write lines to correct the week's work.  Take it to a printer and for about $5.50 have a nice spiral bound Grammar and Vocabulary book he can use all year.

Your next BONUS is an Appendix with tons of extra helps so you don't have to research lots of different books, guides or websites to help your students write correctly.  The appendices include:

  • Grammar & Mechanic Rules (Punctuation, Grammar)
  • Excellence in Writing Style Techniques (Dress-Ups, Sentence Openers, Advanced Style)
  • Abbreviation List
  • Proofreading Symbols
  • Sample of Student Work
  • Index of Grammar Explanations in Fix-It

Before publishing these stories, the author (Pamela White) tested them with students 2 years now (her own homeschooled children and students in homeschool co-ops and tutorials).  After 2 years, she has very positive results.

 The kids have fun with the stories and are eager to find out what happens, which makes learning the grammar more enjoyable. She deliberately challenges the students with some grammar they probably won't know, so she can use the stories as a means of teaching concepts as well as reinforcing what they've already learned.

I have used these stories with elementary, junior high, and high school students. The best thing about teaching grammar with this method is the fun we all have. My students look forward to grammar lessons - no, really! - and I look forward to teaching them. These is something about working with a serial that piques our interest and keeps us coming back for more.

Over the Christmas break, I had one high school student email to ask if the tutorial class could keep getting the sentences over the break because they wanted to know what was going to happen to Sir Gawain next. The students are always surprised with all they have painlessly learned when we finish an end of the year grammar test.

With my own children, I have noticed excellent carryover to standardized testing, where the child is required to locate errors. I wish I had been taught grammar with this method!

Which students work Best with Fix-It?

I think it works well as a stand-alone once students have learned parts of speech and basic sentence structure (dependent and independent clauses, phrases), if the parent or teacher takes the time to make sure students understand the rules, which are listed beside the sentences.  Parents & teachers get PLENTY of HELP with full explanations of the rules in the BONUS Appendix.traditional

Generally, by the time students reach high school, exercises in grammar don't translate well to their writing. Grammar should come as much as possible from writing itself, and IEW's style system is the best to helps with that. The Fix-Its help you see what your students don't know. Fix-Its keep the conversation about rules AND style techniques open. When you reiterate through discussion, you help those rules sink in.

PLUS...the IEW grammar system also aids your students in tackling standardized tests like the SAT because the tests offer them incorrect sentences which they must then fix.

This sounds alot like Editor-in-Chief.  What makes Fix-It better for my kids?

It's only a little like Editor-in-Chief, which I used with my children for a few months. Editor-in-Chief can be frustrating to homeschool moms & teachers.  The embedded errors aren't the kinds of things your children needed to be working on.  It seems too hit or miss, with not enough focus on the important issues.

Fix-It is different from Editor because each of its 5 stories lasts a full year - so it's really 5 years of grammar in one book. Written for different age groups from 3rd grade to seniors, the stories allow students to rewrite 4 passages a week for 33 weeks.

The first three stories have built-in advanced concepts, identified in the explanations by an exclamation mark, which allows even the easiest story to work well with many ages and abilities. All of the stories are intended to be challenging; teachers & moms should remind students that they won't find all the errors. Some of the errors will be review for the students. Some allow you to teach on the spot (and keep reinforcing through repetition of the same rule) new concepts.

My son and daughter have been using these stories for two years. They both enjoy the witty content and the painless way grammar concepts are introduced and reviewed. I have seen them develop the ability to apply the concepts in their own writing.
