Caught'ya Again! More Grammar with a Giggle.
Kiester, Jane Bell
This teaching guide is built around a method (called the "Caught'ya" method) of teaching grammar and mechanics with humor. The guide contains story ideas and three sets of 100 Caught'ya sentences, as well as a chapter which discusses specific ways to use the Caught'ya at home. Following an introduction, the guide is divided into the following nine sections: (1) Revisiting Caught'ya! Grammar with a Giggle (Skim This Chapter if You Have Read the Book); (2) How to Do a "Caught'Ya for Two" (Parents and Tutors, This One Is Especially for You); (3) Coming Up with Your Own Story and Sentences (A Dialogue with a Plot in Mind); (4) Mini-Lessons (Ideas for the Extra 35 Minutes You Now Have); (5) Writing Suggestions (More Ideas!); (6) Six New Story Ideas (Plus Ninety Sentences of"Adolescent Transmuted Karate Otters"); (7) 100 Caught'ya Sentences for Grades 2 through 5 ("The Meanest Teacher in the World"); (8) 100 Caught'ya Sentences for Grades 6 through 8 ("Tales of a Four-eyed Weirdo"); and (9) 100 Caught'ya Sentences for grades 9 through 12 ("Charlie Excess Does It Again"). An appendix entitled "Everything You Never Wanted to Know about Grammar, Mechanics, and Usage, but I'm Going to Tell You Anyway" and a 13-item bibliography conclude the guide. (NKA)
