Why Is the Well-Ordered Language Series Remarkable?

~ Written by Marissa Moldoch ~

“Conjunction Junction, what’s your function?” a Schoolhouse Rock singer asks during the popular 1970s song of the same name. “I like tying up words and phrases and clauses,” responds another vocalist. Without the incorporation of whimsical, thought-provoking elements, the study of grammar can quickly become a formulaic experience. (I don’t know about you, but I can still hear my classmates groaning as the teacher prompts us to answer questions about subject-verb agreement.) Looking for a series that harnesses the power of creativity and classical principles to teach your students the building blocks of grammar? Well-Ordered Language fits the bill. (Not the bill that sits on Capitol Hill. That’s a song for another day.)

If grammar isn’t your best subject, don’t worry. Well-Ordered Language will help you and your students engage with the concepts presented in each lesson. “Well-Ordered Language has changed the way I look at grammar. The program is so straightforward and makes grammar clear and easy to understand. The analysis strategy makes even challenging sentences simple to diagram,” says Sarah W. from Tennessee. As your students delight in rearranging sentences and learning how words behave, you can sharpen your grammatical skills by reviewing the pedagogical tips and extensive explanations in the Teacher’s Edition.

“After a year of ‘trying something different,’ my daughter was begging to return to the Well-Ordered Language program,” says Colleen from Wyoming. “We loved the simplicity, relevancy, and ease of use. The books are lovely, the writing engaging, and the examples and exercises are helpful and easy to use. Hands down, our favorite grammar program. And we have tried many!”

As Colleen suggests, the Well-Ordered Language series brims with imaginative ways to encourage engagement. For instance, each book prompts students to read, sing, chant, recite, discuss, and retell narratives. Students will also learn about the parts of speech by playing games, and by analyzing and diagramming sentences. 

Wherever the lesson leads you, one thing’s for certain: The fun doesn’t stop at grammatical concepts. Well-Ordered Language seamlessly integrates with (and piques students’ interest in) other subjects. “My son is using Latin for Children and Well-Ordered Language. These two products work so well together. I love how one reinforces the other. My son is enjoying them too and looks forward to his lessons,” says Michelle G. from Maryland. 

Well-Ordered Language also works well with Writing & Rhetoric. As students grasp the fundamentals of grammar, they can move beyond sentences and apply their knowledge to paragraphs and essays. Additionally, the Well-Ordered Language texts incorporate poems and encourage students to research the settings mentioned in the sentences, such as the Mammoth Cave National Park in Mammoth, Kentucky.

Does this grammar series sound different from the other grammar programs you’ve tried? That’s exactly what the authors intended. Any grammar textbook can teach your students the difference between an adjective and an adverb; Well-Ordered Language makes an impact because it stays true to the principles of classical education. As A. Jeffries from New York explains, he “was not raised in the classical way,” yet he finds Well-Ordered Language (as well as Writing & Rhetoric and Song School Latin) “to be excellent in guiding me as I teach my children. I feel more and more confident every time I teach a lesson,” he says. By employing the Well-Ordered Language curriculum, you can introduce your students to the rich heritage of classical education, foster an appreciation for the liberal arts, and promote the cultivation of wisdom and virtue.
