Grammar for Writing
Understanding the Mechanics of Grammar and How Language Works
When students really understand how grammar works, they naturally apply their grammar skills while writing.
Traditional “prescriptive” grammar methods focus on memorizing abstract rules and endless “drill and kill” repetition. Grammar for Writing uses a “descriptive” approach to help students learn how language works and why grammar rules exist.
Each chapter in Grammar for Writing explores a core concept of grammar, from clauses and phrases to the logic of punctuation so your students learn the reasons behind the rules. Students then practice their grammar with writing exercises not by completing multiple choice questions.
Help your student understand grammar so well that they can’t help but write more effectively.
