9780132565998: Teaching Grammar Through Writing: Activities to Develop Writer's Craft in All Students in Grades 4-12

Teaching Grammar through Writing is the ideal springboard to teaching grammar to students in grades four through twelve. In a flexible, adaptable approach filled with ready to use activities, author Keith Polette shows teachers how to teach students to learn to recognize, and then consciously use in their writing, 16 essential grammatical elements.

 

Rather than overwhelming students with too many structures, constructions, and rules, the book’s goal is simplification, showing teachers what the essential elements of grammar are that students need to learn to use to become better writers.

From the Back Cover:

This is a book about beginning to teach grammar–through writing! In it, author Keith Polette stresses the important role of the 16 elements of written language–seven parts of speech, six phrases, and three clauses–and shows teachers how to teach students to identify and use these elements effectively in their writing. The book focuses on one grammatical element at a time to help teachers build on students’ prior knowledge and progresses from words to phrases to clauses, then to editing and process writing in a flexible approach that teachers can use as presented, or easily adapt to their own particular classroom needs.

 

While the overall structure of the highly successful first edition has been maintained, this edition is streamlined to become even more accessible than the first edition through the author’s careful deletion of certain information and his addition of information that strengthens each chapter.

 

·         New writing activities using nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, gerunds, participial phrases, appositive phrases, adjective clauses, adverb clauses, how to begin sentences, a cause and effect poem, and a new sentence combining activity using absolute phrases have been included.

 

·         Additional information is included on absolute phrases, gerund phrases, infinitive phases, and participial phrases.
