Abstract:

"[This resource] is a new take on an old₆fashioned subject₆a slim, practical guide with more than 150 fresh ideas for addressing parts of speech and sentence structure, from teaching it, to learning it, to adapting it for students whose home language isn₂t English. Because of its accessibility and practicality, you₂ll keep Getting Grammar close at hand because it₂s a ready reference for your own grammar questions and a treasure trove of teaching ideas. Whether you are a veteran teacher, a new teacher, or a preservice teacher, Donna Hooker Topping and Sandra Josephs Hoffman offer plenty of information and lessons you can use in the classroom right away, including: a quick review of the grammatical concepts you₂ll be teaching; more than 150 engaging ways to teach it through authentic literature, writing, movement, games, music, art, even drama; smart advice for supporting English learners as they encounter grammar in a new language; assessment tips and tools. In addition Getting Grammar includes information about the grammar of other languages that can help you evaluate students₂ proficiency with English syntax and assist them in transitioning from the familiar word order and usage rules of their first language to those of English. Grammar is a vitally important subject to understand for reading and writing, and it₂s now a part of many state and national assessment tests."--Publisher's website (books.heinemann.com).
