What grammar do you use for Jr High?

I am looking for something for ds 14. He really struggles in this area.

Any suggestions? :unsure:

We like Analytical Grammar. It's very easy to use, and can be spaced out over 3 years. You can take a look at it (and watch a video about it) at http://www.analyticalgrammar.com/.

Christian LIberty Press has a rather highly recommended program from 7th through 12th grade, called Applications in Grammar. It teaches grammar in the context of usage, rather than an isolated concept. By the time the student has reached 12th grade, he is using his grammar to write complete critical essays. Here's Cathy Duffy's review (http://www.cathyduffyreviews.com/grammar-composition/applications-of-grammar.htm ) and the Rainbow Resource review is pretty good, too.

My son did very well with Easy Grammar Plus. We took two years to go through it.
