NCTE’s Assembly for the Teaching of English Grammar
provides this much-needed resource for K–college teachers who wonder
what to do about grammar—how to teach it, how to apply it, how to learn
what they themselves were never taught. Grammar Alive! offers
teachers ways to negotiate the often conflicting goals of testing,
confident writing, the culturally inclusive classroom, and the teaching
of Standard English while also honoring other varieties of English.
This hands-on approach to grammar in the classroom includes numerous
examples and practical vignettes describing real teachers’ real
classroom experiences with specific grammar lessons—including ESL
issues—as well as a review of grammar basics.
