Course Description

See Reviews of Instructor Bev Graybill

The goal of this course is for the students to improve their understanding of sentence structure so that they make less mistakes in their writing and can also write stronger sentences. I believe by focusing specifically on grammar for a short time over the summer, students will be more ready for English class and do better on their compositions next school year.

Course Structure

This 7-week minicourse is scheduled for Summer Session 2, (July-August) but it is very flexible. Students will have access to the class beginning in June in case they want to get a head start on the class before the official start date, and then take off a week later in the summer. Each day we focus on a different skill in English grammar. On Tuesday through Friday, students watch a 15-20 minute video and complete a practice exercise. During the optional live class on Monday, they’ll have opportunity to ask questions and review before taking the quiz for that set of lessons. Additional resources are given in case students need extra practice.

Who should enroll?

This class is designed for 6th-7th graders, but older students that need more practice are also welcome.

Technology Requirements:

  • High speed, broadband Internet
  • Streaming video capabilities to watch recorded lectures

Evaluation and Feedback

Most of the questions on each exercise are automatically graded by Canvas, but a few require writing sentences so that I review all of their answers. I give additional feedback about any mistakes students have made, especially when I see patterns of errors. All but the quizzes are set up so that they can be taken more than once; students are encouraged to review their mistakes and repeat the exercise to show improved understanding whenever needed.


Parents can email me for a diagnostic test for each level if they are unsure which is the right level course for their student. I will send each parent a progress report at the end of the mini-course term. Parents are welcome to contact me at any time if they have concerns or questions, and I will contact parents if students aren’t keeping up with the work.

  1. Parent (English Grammar 1)

    As a parent I enjoyed this class. Watching my son grow in his understanding of grammar and developing a stronger base for writing. My son enjoyed the class as well. He found it challenging but nothing he could not overcome with some work. Mrs. Graybill was always willing to meet and discuss any questions he may have had throughout the course. She always offered critic and suggestions where things had been marked incorrectly. You can see it is her goal not to just “run a class” but really for your kid to succeed in the learning process. My son and I both look forward to him taking Grammar 2.
