This practical, brief paperback with hands-on activities is designed to "fill in the blanks" in teachers' own knowledge of English grammar and to demonstrate a reliable method for teaching English grammar to elementary school pupils. It provides a solid foundation in the sociolinguistic and psycholinguistic aspects of grammar and grammar instruction; followed by step-by-step coverage of the basics of word and phrase development, and of the construction of the three or four types of sentences that English words can be used to create. In addition, coverage examines solutions to common usage problems faced by native speakers, non-standard speakers, and ELL students.

Learning and Teaching English Grammar, K-12, supports a growing need to ensure all students are effectively taught English grammar. This book contains a wealth of useful, easy-to-follow elements for teachers, including:

Authentic mini-classroom cases
Teaching to Learn - metacognitive exercises for readers to use in reviewing English grammar
Learning to Teach - specific examples aimed at implementing classroom strategies
Specifically designed features to support teachers who struggle to develop academic literacy for ELL students

Review quote

Here's what reviewers had to say about Learning and Teaching English Grammar, K-12:

"The chapters are consistently good. They present the material clearly, logically, and as simply as possible, given the reasonably challenging nature of this material." -- Harold Nelson, Minot State University

"What I liked most about the manuscript were the teaching applications. Too often grammar texts are too theoretical to be of much use for preservice teachers." -- Ann Bolling, California State university, Stanislaus

" An important appeal of this book is, in my opinion, its tone and audience treatment. The author clearly knows her audience and has developed a methodology that will be very accessible." -- Roberta Murata, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

"Extremely well-written with excellent pedagogical devices. Very accessible to pre-and inservice teachers." -- Larry Andrews, University of Nebraska, Lincoln
