Paperback Grammar for Handbook Haters.
Lambert, Dorothy
The Teachers Guide to Media & Methods, v3 n5 p12-5 Jan 1967
Students will respond better to grammar instruction if the traditional heavy handbooks are replaced with light-weight paperbacks, each full of practical suggestions and clear examples. Several inexpensive paperbacks are available for instruction in grammar and usage, spelling, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing. Unlike the conventional handbooks, the paperbacks exhibit a lively, direct, conversational style which is appealing to students. Also, many of them provide answers to exercises and thus allow for both individual and small-group instruction. (A bibliography of paperbacks costing under a dollar is appended and five paperbacks for use at the high school level are singled out for discussion.) (SW)
