razorbackmama Posted June 23, 2009 Share Posted June 23, 2009 From what I can tell, there are 2 "schools" of thought regarding teaching grammar to grammar-stage kids: gentle, a la Primary Language Lessons, Winston Grammar, etc., and more rigorous, a la Rod and Staff, First Language Lessons, BJU, etc. Now, I know that the curriculums I'm calling "rigorous" are actually quite gentle, however, they introduce things earlier rather than relying on things like copywork, dictation, and other methods to introduce grammar to younger kids. So which is "better?" Has anyone ever used some of the more gentle grammar curriculums in the early years and regretted it? On the flip side, has anyone ever used something more "rigorous" (again, note the quotes) and found that it wasn't necessary and that a more gentle approach would have worked just as well? Does it matter? Does it depend on the child? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
