The second edition of Get Ahead in Grammar: A Practical Guide has been updated with new content to further meet the demands of the Australian Curriculum and NAPLAN assessment. This book is the perfect reference tool to help students understand the rules for the correct use of English grammar within a context of various text types.

Retaining the simplicity and coherent structure of the first edition, it provides the scaffolding and modelling necessary for the development of writing skills. Various types of text are explored throughout the guide and students are introduced to grammar initially from an overall text level and then at a more micro level.


1 Grammar at the Text Level
2 Grammar at the Sentence Level
3 Grammar at the Clause Level
4 Grammar at the Phrase Level
5 Grammar at the Word Level
