Analytical Grammar is a middle and high school level curriculum that teaches grammar conceptually and sequentially. Analytical Grammar goes beyond memorization, equipping students to fully understand and apply the mechanics of usage, punctuation, and structure.
Author Robin Finley was a language arts teacher for 34 years. In 1981 after the language arts department at the school she was teaching at refused to purchase additional grammar books, she began developing her own program. She spent 12 years of tweaking, testing, and making improvements to what is now known as Analytical Grammar. Robin continued to expand her offerings to include Junior Analytical Grammar, High School Reinforcement books, and a program for teaching the research paper and 5-paragraph essay.
Erin Karl, daughter of Robin Finley, followed in her mother’s footsteps. After entering the Air Force Reserves she gained her teaching credential and began teaching middle school language arts. Erin ran the Analytical Grammar company for several years before returning to full-time service with the US Air Force.
