Sentence Sense is the core text. It contains all the grammar with cues to the learner as to when to switch to the Skills Practice Book.
The Skills Practice Book is both an indispensable companion to the grammar text (it has all the practice exercises for the grammar instruction) and a complete course in paragraph-and-essay writing.
The Answer Book has all the answers for the Skills Practice Book’s grammar exercises.
The Teacher’s Guide has the following: tips for instruction throughout; chapter tests; and extra examples [for teacher use].
The videotape of orientation is a graphic demonstration of how the key parts of the program work; it is a simulation of the workshop/ presentation given.
What to order:
Each student needs the two textbooks, the text proper (in hard or soft cover) that contains just the grammar instruction and the Skills Practice Book that not only contains the practice for the grammar but also includes a mini-text of paragraph and essay instruction-and practice (to be found toward the end of each of its 17 chapters).
