Craft of grammar

Anderson, Jeff
In The craft of grammar, Jeff Anderson shows how he brings grammar and craft together meaningfully for student writers. Jeff and his sixth-grade students move easily from analyzing sentences to freewrites in writer's notebooks to,express-lane edits' of their writing in daily workshops. This video includes examples of: Developing whole-class lessons focused on short mentor text. Linking the writer's notebook to grammar instruction. Assisting students in individual conferences as they test new writing strategies and analyze text. Scaffolding learning through guided practice and small-group work. Creating mnemonic devices to help students retain key rules. Celebrating student success and tactfully correcting errors. About the author: Jeff Anderson has taught at large, urban Title I schools in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio for the past twenty years. He recently left the classroom to write and consult with schools and school districts on a full-time basis. Jeff's areas of specialty are writing; using mentor texts to teach writing, grammar, editing, and revising; and integrating reading and writing. "I love the ability to spark curiosity and creativity and to support students in finding their voices. That's pure joy."
