Since 1989, our mission at Shurley English has been to do all we can to help teachers and students experience language arts success! Our curriculum uses a unique combination of features to reveal a logical connection between grammar, skills, and writing. Abstract language arts concepts become clear and logical using concrete, multi-sensory strategies.
Jingles—We teach the parts of speech and key language arts concepts in a fun, brain-compatible way using jingles. Students learn jingles easily and incrementally as they are chanted or sung, incorporating rhythm, rhyme, and movement.
The Question & Answer Flow—We teach students a systematic way to ask specific questions to uncover the role each word plays in a sentence. This strategy supercharges vocabulary and develops important fluency skills.
Sentence Blueprints—We teach students to use correct grammar while composing sentences. Students learn to refine sentences using revision strategies, such as adding, deleting, changing, and repositioning words for increased clarity.
Writing—We teach capitalization, punctuation, and grammar skills through a consistently spiraled approach so that students learn not only correct usage but also practice higher-order thinking in the writing and editing process. Our step-by-step process takes the guesswork out of composing excellent sentences, paragraphs, and essays while supporting the voice of the writer.
With pre-recorded lessons, enhanced digital textbooks, and award-winning print materials, Shurley English is truly “English Made Easy!” As you explore your home learning options, don’t hesitate to contact us. We are here to help you on your journey to language arts success!
