More Grammar to Get Things Done

Darren Crovitz and Michelle D. Devereaux

CO-PUBLISHED BY ROUTLEDGE AND THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH

This book demystifies grammar in context and offers day-by-day guides for teaching ten grammar concepts, giving teachers a model and vocabulary for discussing grammar in real ways with their students. Through applied practice in real-world contexts, the authors explain how to develop students’ mastery of grammar and answer difficult questions about usage, demonstrating how grammar acts as a tool for specific purposes in students’ lives. Accessibly written and organised, the book provides ten adaptable activity guides for each concept, illustrating instruction from a use-based perspective. Middle and high school preservice and inservice English teachers will gain confidence in their own grammar knowledge and learn how to teach grammar in ways that are uniquely accessible and purposeful for students.
