We offer the following products in Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind, with licenses available for the student workbooks. There are four cycles (colors) of Student Books: Purple, Red, and Blue are available now with Yellow to come in 2021.
All of the products are available through The Well-Trained Mind Store.
We offer two optional reference books per classroom, or more if you want them available for student use. The Grammar Guidebook can be used by teachers or students as a lifetime grammar guide. The Diagramming Dictionary gives teachers and/or students a power-assist for diagramming instruction.
The Core Instructor Text Years 1-4: This is the instructor text for all four cycles (colors) of instruction. The teaching material is the same for each cycle; the student material differs in each book to provide variety over 4 cycles of practice. You can expect your students to take more than a year to cover all the material in a cycle/color.
The Student Workbook can be purchased from our web store in paperback, or you can purchase a license to reproduce the student pages from a PDF you buy from the web store. Each student needs a workbook.
Answer Key for Student Workbook: Each teacher will need an answer key for the Student Workbook; this can be in paperback or PDF format.
Some schools prefer to purchase the paperback Student Workbooks, but others want to buy a license and have the students (or the school) do the printing. Take a look at the costs of printing, the flexibility you need for online or in-person instruction, the ease of administration, and the cost of purchase/shipping to determine what works best for you.
In general, if you intend to use the whole book in one year, it is more cost-effective to purchase the paperback books from our store; if you will use only half the book, or if you need additional flexibility to deal with online instruction or assignment delivery, a license can make more sense.
For general information regarding licenses, please go to this article, where you can learn the details and find the pricing document.
One route that works for some situations: each family purchases the student workbook for its student(s). They can purchase paperback or PDF and they can use the book again for students from their own family without infringing copyright.
