Towards More Painless Grammar.
Hoover, Regina M.
Teaching grammar to freshman composition students can be accomplished without turning the class into a remedial course or expending an undue amount of either student or teacher energy. Before grammar can have meaning for students, however, writing itself must become important to them. The teaching of the mechanics of language, therefore, should take place within the context of students' compositions. Six "minigrammars," or self-instructional units, are designed to help students achieve a working knowledge of the following: subject and verb identification; proper verb forms and tense shifting; sentence fragments and run-on sentences; pronouns; sentence logic, including misplaced modifiers; and elementary matters of style, principally sentence combining.
