Step-by-Step Grammar Volume I: Basic Grammar teaches the eight parts of speech: noun, verb, adjective, adverb, pronoun, preposition, conjunction and interjection. It also teaches diagraming, compound sentences, prepositional phrases, and verb phrases. This book was originally written to be used by fifth and sixth graders who are struggling with grammar. However, anyone who lacks a solid understanding of the basic eight parts of speech will benefit from this book.

The organization of this book is very different from the majority of grammar books. In most grammar books, verbs are presented first. In the verb chapter, the student identifies verbs in sentences that are full of other words. The student has not yet learned the functions of these other words. This same problem persists through the noun, pronoun, adjective, and adverb chapters. It is not until nearly the end of the book that the student is able to identify every word in the sentence and explain its function. Frequently, this arrangement leaves the student feeling confused and gives him the idea that most of English cannot be understood by anyone other than English teachers.

From the beginning, the sentences are kept simple so that every word may be identified. No word or phrase appears in the exercises until it has been explained. This arrangement should help the student realize that English grammar functions by a set of rules that he can understand and master.
