Welcome Home Educators!
The innovative teaching materials from DGP Publishing are ideal for home education! Our reading comprehension, spelling, writing, grammar, and vocabulary materials are designed for students of all ages; they engage students in short but connected lessons; and they’re suitable for either guided or independent learning. Take a look at our site and see why thousands of parents worldwide rely on and praise our materials.
DGP Academy Instructional Videos
DGP Academy provides short video lessons (about 1-5 minutes each) to accompany each day of Daily Grammar Practice. Dawn Burnette, creator of DGP, walks you through every sentence, explaining all of the concepts and answering questions that students and parents often ask. It’s like having an expert as your own personal instructor!
To utilize the DGP Academy videos, parents still need a copy of the teacher’s guide, and students still need either workbooks or photocopied help pages and sentence lists from the teacher’s guide. Learn more about DGP Academy and see sample videos on our blog post.

Great Homeschool Conventions Workshops
We invite you to attend our two workshops available as part of the 2020 GHC Online Homeschooling Convention.
In "Understanding Grammar: The Language of Writing," we provide meaningful grammar instruction, of course, but we also teach you how to make sure your children connect their understanding of grammar to their own writing.
In "Reading, Vocabulary, and Spelling: Meaningful Strategies for All Learners," we share innovative paper-and-pencil methods for teaching students of all grade levels, and we share some exciting hands-on activities as well.
Both of these workshops provide practical, easy-to-implement strategies for teaching at home!

DGP Publishing and Common Core
DGP Publishing does not support any testing practices or political agendas associated with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and these aspects of the CCSS have in no way influenced the materials we offer. All of our materials meet (and in most cases exceed) the minimum academic requirements set forth in the CCSS, but none of our materials promote the political agendas you may have seen in sample CCSS exercises and/or tests.
