The Analytical Grammar curriculum helps students communicate more effectively by providing thoughtful instruction of English grammar. Rather than relying on memorization, this program uses activities that lead students to develop a genuine understanding of grammar.
What Makes Analytical Grammar Unique?
- Grammar is one part of a comprehensive language arts program. Studying grammar and mechanics helps us become better communicators.
- Like Math-U-See and Spelling You See, this program is designed to teach sequentially. Concepts are taught in a logical order, building on each other, for a complete understanding of grammar. No previous grammar studies needed!
- Easy-to-follow lessons make it easy for both students and teacher. Each level include helpful notes, exercises for students to practice, as well as answer keys.Activities, such as diagramming, help students see how the parts of sentences fit together.
- You don’t have to teach grammar all year long. Grammar is taught when students are ready, which allows them to master concepts and commit to memory without years of study.
Determine the right fit for your student

About the Authors - Robin Finley and Erin Karl
Robin Finley began teaching in 1971 and taught language arts for 34 years before retiring in 2003. In 1981, Robin started to write Analytical Grammar in response to her district questioning the importance of grammar in learning to write.
After years of using, revising, and editing the materials, she was approached by a private school, asking if the materials were for sale.
Erin Karl, Robin’s daughter, grew up using her mother’s curriculum. After graduating from college, Erin was commissioned as an active duty officer in the U.S. Air Force. After four years of active duty, she earned her teaching credential and taught middle school language arts for several years, using Analytical Grammar in her classroom.
Erin served as CEO for 22 years before Demme Learning acquired the Analytical Grammar brand in 2020.
