The Shurley Method provides a step-by-step approach to teaching grammar and writing
skills. Lessons are complete with detailed teaching strategies, student practice,
and countless resources with which to promote student success. Although new skills
are introduced regularly, previously studied skills are maintained through repetition
throughout the year. Because most of the skills are reinforced in the classroom,
homework will be significantly reduced. Boasting "English Made Easy," The
Shurley Method is a strong addition to our curriculum.
