Grammar and Usage in the Classroom addresses prospective English teachers who need both to learn basic grammar themselves and to prepare themselves to successfully teach grammar. Based on the author's extensive work with school districts, in-service teachers, and hundreds of his own students, the second edition has been thoroughly revised and reorganized into three parts: Grammar; Usage; and A Glossary of Grammatical Terms. The grammar opens with a chapter on the current state of teaching grammar and usage; presents traditional school grammar; and, in the last grammar chapter, introduces a modern descriptive grammar to analyze verb complements. For elementary and secondary teachers and English majors.
A textbook for teachers in training. Lester (Eastern Washington U.) strives to provide a solid knowledge of grammar and the skills to teach it to students, and a broad understanding of the causes and treatments of usage errors. The first edition was published as by Macmillan in 1990. The second separates grammar and usage, provides more material for second- language learners and verb forms and tense and less on sentence combining, replaces classical transformational grammar with a new descriptive grammar, and adds a glossary of grammatical terms without pronunciation guides.
