Grammar to Enrich & Enhance Writing
Grammar to Enrich and Enhance Writing is Connie Weaver's latest treasure for grammar instruction that strengthens writing. Born from the ideas and research in her much-loved Teaching Grammar in Context, and benefiting from the creativity of her colleague Jonathan Bush, this new resource goes even further to bring the best research, theory, and practices into the classroom. Grammar to Enrich and Enhance Writing is three helpful books in one. In the first part, Weaver outlines the latest theories, research, and principles that underlie high-quality grammar instruction for writing. She demonstrates that specific, effective grammar-teaching practices:
- address all of the 6 Traits of writing instruction
- emphasize depth, not breadth
- should be positive, productive, and practical-not stodgy, "correct," and limiting
- must be incorporated throughout the writing process, not broken out in isolated units.
