Caught'Ya! Grammar with a Giggle.
Kiester, Jane Bell
Helping students in grades 3 through 11 to master the mechanics of language, this book describes the "Caught'ya" approach to teaching grammar, in which students correct error-filled sentences that form an ongoing humorous plot. The book notes that the sentences are presented 3 to 5 times a week at the start of class and take less than 10 minutes to complete. After a preface and an introduction, chapters in the book are (1) What Is a Caught'ya and How Does It Work?; (2) The Caught'ya in Ten Easy Steps; (3) How to Evaluate the Caught'ya; (4) Beyond the Basic Caught'ya; (5) Six Sample Story Ideas; (6) 100 Sample Caught'yas--"The Magic Purple Umbrella"; (7) 100 Sample Caught'yas--"Hairy Beast and Friends"; (8) 100 Sample Caught'yas--"'Romeo and Juliet' Revisited and Revised"; and (9) Conclusion--Caught'ya Again!
