Grammar Comics! makes grammar more entertaining for students; every student will find the cartoons amusing and engaging and will help make grammar an approachable subject. It also helps with the memorization and retention of rules because students will be able to attach a visual to the lesson and can recall the cartoon when a particular idea must be applied. Some teachers have their students create their own cartoons following the Grammar Comics! format to help illustrate other grammar concepts.

Additionally, the eBook provides 64 full page color cartoons on key grammar and usage concepts and rules.

The cartoons follow the popular and effective Sentence Lifting sequence of instruction and were designed in conjunction with Mark Pennington’s Teaching Grammar and Mechanics comprehensive one-volume grammar, usage, mechanics, and spelling curriculum.
