Benjamin, Amy; Berger, Joan
Eye on Education
In this book, the authors share procedures for teaching grammar effectively and dynamically, in ways that appeal to students and teachers alike. Ideal for teachers just beginning their work in grammar instruction, this book includes day-by-day units and reproducibles to help them embed grammar lessons into writing instruction. Using visuals, wordplay, problem solving, and pattern-finding activities, teachers can forgo methods that fail to engage students in grammar. Through a series of activities designed to delve deeper into grammar learning, the authors share strategies that have proven successful during their extensive years of teaching and literacy consulting. Contents include: (1) Teaching Recognition of Complete Sentences; (2) Sentence Slots; (3) Teaching about Verbs and Adverbs; (4) Teaching about Nouns, Pronouns, and Adjectives; (5) Links: Conjunctions and Prepositions; (6) Your Guidebook for Embedding Grammar in Writing Instruction; (7) Writing with Compound Sentences That Link Ideas: A Five-Day Lesson Series Embedded in the Writing Process; (8) Writing with Adverb Clauses That Show Relationship: A Six-Day Lesson Series Embedded in the Writing Process; (9) Writing with Appositives That Enrich Detail: A Three-Day Lesson Series Embedded in the Writing Process; (10) Writing with Adjective Clauses That Enrich Detail: A Seven-Day Lesson Series Embedded in the Writing Process; (11) Writing with Participial Phrases for Improved Elaboration: A Six-Day Lesson Series Embedded in the Writing Process; (12) Writing with Absolute Phrases That Tighten Description: A Four-Day Lesson Series Embedded in the Writing Process; (13) Conclusion; and (14) References.
