Grammar and Syntax: The Student's Perspective.
Vavra, Ed
English Journal, v76 n6 p42-48 Oct 1987
Argues that problems in teaching grammar stem from failure to help students develop, as opposed to memorize, grammatical concepts. Recommends discussion of style and vocabulary, student stylistic analysis of their own writing, and deciphering syntactic use, not just definition, of parts of speech. Suggests that such training should begin in elementary grades when sentence structure is still simple. (JG)
