Grammar and Usage in the Classroom by Mark LesterGrammar and Usage in the Classroom addresses prospective English teachers who need both to learn basic grammar themselves and to prepare themselves to successfully teach grammar. Based on the authors extensive work with school districts, in-service teachers, and hundreds of his own students, the second edition has been thoroughly revised and reorganized into three parts: Grammar; Usage; and A Glossary of Grammatical Terms. The grammar opens with a chapter on the current state of teaching grammar and usage; presents traditional school grammar; and, in the last grammar chapter, introduces a modern descriptive grammar to analyze verb complements. For elementary and secondary teachers and English majors.
Grammar and Usage in the Classroom
All educators agree that students are better writers when they have an understanding of grammar. To be effective writers in school and to effectively communicate later in life when in the workplace, students need to use proper grammar. But, what are the best methods for teaching grammar, normally thought of as a very boring topic? Educators do disagree on what types of grammar teaching methods are effective. Some teachers begin their English or language arts classes with standard grammar exercises. Others pass out worksheets that require circling and underlining parts of speech.
