Here’s what teachers are saying about 
Simple Steps to Sentence Sense:

“I have used this book for two years and it is amazing to see how well the students learn and enjoy it. My students always tell me how they will never forget how to locate prepositions or direct objects! Each year the students have gotten further in the steps, and they find it less difficult to learn. Out of the two years that I've used this book, I have not had one student to complain when it was time to work on grammar. It actually gives them more confidence and builds their grammar skills. . . .Everyone should use this book to teach grammar!”

You are right...the kids see grammar as "easy stuff" because you break down the analysis so well. Their improved grammar knowledge transforms into their process writing: their revision and editing TAKS scores are markedly improved with this practice.
Even though you are from Texas and know the high stakes testing concerns that we face, the SAM sheet makes the students' writing much clearer and more concise. This is the most sincere complement to your book.

 “I have been looking for an effective approach to teaching grammar to my high school English classes. Teaching grammar and teaching grammar effectively are two different things. Having only read through the first few pages of this workbook, I am already excited to bring it into the classroom. For any teachers looking for a good method of teaching sentence structure and grammar - this is what you want! Not only is it a good tool for students, but it also makes me more comfortable teaching the subject. Thanks!”

"I'm a teacher in a language school. Anyway, this book is absolutely useful for my class where I've been teaching sentence structure. Even oxford books can't write a book to cover this important English content. Thank you again. I'm sure more and more teachers will know how your book is well written." -- Helen Lace

"I love this product! My SPED students struggled to identify subject and predicate at the beginning of the year. When I used your approach of identifying the prepositional phrase first, the light clicked on for my students! Thank you for such a wonderful resource (I love your middle school version, too!)"
