The EB Grammar Program
Our standards-aligned grammar program is practical, engaging, and supports students
as they master the grammar standards and actually apply the skills to their writing.
We’re on a mission to make the biggest impact possible and change the way middle school teachers teach grammar. We hope you'll join us.
The 3 Pillars of the EB Grammar Framework
Make use of our helpful PowerPoint presentations and guided notes to enlighten students on the grammar concepts you want them to learn. Our fun student-facing videos are another fantastic way for your teachers to deliver all this great grammar knowledge! Measure students’ understanding quickly and effectively with simple assessments.
Harness the power of engagement with our hands-on games that help students practice and remember what they have learned. Each skill includes a low-prep game (just print and pass out) and a more complex game (a printable board game or card game). These games are also perfect for spiral review throughout the year.
Application to Writing
Empower students to apply their grammar knowledge with Application to Writing Checklists - encouraging students to employ particular skills as they write. Along with tips on how to modify existing writing rubrics to assess specific grammar skills, our program helps your teachers seamlessly integrate grammar instruction with writing.
This straightforward process of direct instruction, engaging games, and spiral review gives teachers the confidence and direction to help students master the grammar standards, while students become confident, skilled writers and communicators who naturally apply grammar rules to their writing.

What Teachers Are Saying
"Having taught three years with EB now, the time I've gotten back to be a better wife and mother is huge. I get to sit down and enjoy dinner with my family.
I've been trying to help my colleague with this [approach to teaching] because every day she's going home and spending three or four hours prepping her next day's lesson. She's like, “I'm so tired. I feel like a first-year teacher all over again.”
And I said...you don't have to be this exhausted.
I'm ready for the next day. I'm not panicked about teaching in a couple of hours, because I know what I'm doing, I have it ready to go."
– URSULA FAGERSTROM, Grades 9-10
"My admin sent me a message and talked to me in person about how excellent my classes were, how engaged the students were, and how they're so proud of 'the teacher I have become.'
The kids shine ever so brightly today and just capture everyone's hearts! I am so pumped for tomorrow!"
