Grammar Instruction: What Teachers Say.
Petruzzella, Brenda Arnett
English Journal, v85 n7 p68-72 Nov 1996
Presents the comments of six English teachers concerning grammar instruction. Finds that teachers seldom think of grammar as a description of the structure of the language but rather as mechanics and usage, subject-verb agreement, and spelling. Suggests that researchers do not always clearly distinguish between the formal study of descriptive grammar and the practical application of usage skills. (RS)
