The design of Easy Grammar: Grade 1 makes it easy to teach and easy for students to learn. The 180 daily, short (5-10 minute) lessons afford students a paradigm to learn well. The teacher-led instruciton reinforces correct usage. Concepts have been set up cyclically because children need a "hook" to give meaning to their learning. As students encounter concepts, dendrites grow. When students encounter the concept again, dendrites are strengthened by synapses, and more learning ensues. This process, over a period of time, promotes mastery learning.
