What is Daily Grammar Practice?
Daily Grammar Practice, commonly called "DGP", is a highly acclaimed, research-based program with an approach to help students understand, apply, and actually remember the many grammar concepts. The program is thorough and effective, but fun and surprisingly simple to grasp. DGP is not a "fluffy" program and it's not a quick fix and solution to learning grammar in one day. However, it is a simple, logical process that actually moves grammar concepts to long-term memory so that students can apply the concepts to their writing. Most methods are organized by concept--a lesson on nouns, a lesson on verbs. Daily Grammar Practice pulls all the concepts together so students always see the big picture. Daily Grammar Practice is also daily. It gives students one sentence per week to work with. Each day, students have a different task to accomplish with the week's sentence.Concepts are broken into small parts, but the program is organized in a way that allows students to see how all of the parts fit together. Concepts are then revisited on a daily basis so that they aren't forgotten. The sentences they're working with aren't just random sentences.They're intentionally loaded with specific concepts at specific times. They start simple and get increasingly difficult. Concepts that students should have mastered at their grade level appear in early sentences and appear often. More difficult concepts appear later on in the program.
