Shurley English provides your child with two important ingredients for success: a love of the English Language and an ability to use the English Language correctly, with ease and confidence.
Shurley English. . .
Never Teaches Isolated Concepts
A concrete set of questions about each word in a sentence is used to teach your child how all the parts of a sentence fit together. Your child always has a clear picture of how to write complete sentences.
Utilizes All Learning Styles
Your child is constantly exposed to "see it, hear it, say it, do it" activities that meet the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles.
Uses Parent-Child Interaction
Shurley English uses repetition, fun, and parent-child interaction to help your child learn difficult English skills. You model each new step in Shurley English for your child. Then, your child actively participates with you as the steps are practiced.
Uses Repetition to Attain Mastery
Shurley English provides enough repetition to master each concept taught. Lessons include daily practice of old skills while new skills are being added.
Provides Tools for Writing Excellence
Your child is taught how to merge a strong skill foundation with the writing process. As a result, you can spend less time going over beginning grammar and editing skills and more time introducing and enhancing advanced grammar and writing skills.
Promotes Higher-Order Thinking Skills
Your child uses grammar and writing skills automatically with dependable results. This leads to higher-level thinking skills because your child is stimulated to learn and use his/her own thought processes to solve difficult language problems.
Leads to Success and Improved Self-Esteem
The most important effect of Shurley English on your child may not be the increased grasp of language and improved grammar and writing skills. Instead, the greatest impact may be your child's heightened self-confidence and self-esteem. Not only does your child gain confidence in English, but he/she carries this improved attitude into other subject areas as well.
