    Default Comprehensive one year high school grammar curriculum?

    For various reasons I have deliberately postponed deliberate grammar instruction until 9th grade, when I hope to spend do a one year curriculum that covers it from start to finish. Does anyone know a curriculum that would be suited for this purpose?

    There is a timeline at the bottom that includes a one year plan.

    I use Easy Grammar Plus and I think possibly Our Mother Tongue would work also. Hope you find something you like!

    IEW has one that could easily be a one year program. Fix-It Grammar. We're loving it.

    Thank you so much ladies! I will look into each of these. If you have used any of them, what are your likes and dislikes about them? About how long per day does it take you?

    Melissa, we use IEW for writing and love it. I've seen their grammar program, but thought it was more of a yearly thing rather than an all-in-one-year kind of thing. Do you know which level would be appropriate for doing it just one year?

    I alternate between Abeka and Bob Jones (Abeka on even years -- 6, 8, 10 and Bob Jones on odd years -- 7, 9, 11).
    I've used Fix-It grammar as a supplement.

    Our Mother Tongue by Nancy Wilson would definitely work as a one-year stand-alone grammar program.

    I used Analytical Grammar for one year with a few of my kids and it was great. I love the idea of a one and done. Grammar is not my favorite subject.

    Leslie, how long each day did it take you?
