A Guide to the Role of Grammar in Teaching Writing.
Smelstor, Marjorie, Ed.
One of a series of guides to the teaching of writing at the elementary and secondary levels, this publication describes grammar activities that relate to writing activities. The introductory sections define major approaches to grammar, summarize the current state of research on the relation of formal grammar to composition, and suggest behavioral goals in grammar for students at elementary, middle school, and high school levels. The major portion of the publication describes grammar activities divided according to those three grade levels. Within each grade level, activities are divided according to five categories: sentence sense, mechanics, grammatical structures, diction and usage, and relationship between sentences. The publication concludes with a bibliography of relevant books and magazines, and a list of selected resources for middle school teachers. (GT)
