Summary

''Grammar to Enrich and Enhance Writing is three helpful books in one. In the first part, Constance Weaver outlines the latest theories, research, and principles that underlie high-quality grammar instruction for writing.'' ''In Part Two, Weaver links theory and practice. Her explicit, classroom-proven teaching ideas, strategies, and lessons address key subjects as diverse as helping students make better stylistic use of modifiers, incorporating grammar into revision, and mapping grammar instruction to the curriculum.'' ''Mostly in Part Three, she invites members of the field into a discussion of high-quality grammar instruction. Jeff Anderson (Mechanically Inclined), Rebecca Wheeler (Code-Switching), and other practicing teachers describe their teaching - how they model the vital role grammar plays in guiding students through the editing process, how they respond to student errors, how they help English language learners edit for conventional English, and how grammar supports code-switching among speakers of African American English.''--BOOK JACKET.
