Overview

This thorough yet brief book surveys the issues raised by teaching grammar in the context of writing and gives readers tools to evaluate the grammar of student writing. Teaching Grammar promotes the idea that grammar is best taught in the context of student writing. In a jargon-free manner, Hagemann shows pre-service teachers how to teach grammar and evaluate student writing and how sociolinguistic and rhetorical theories can inform grammar pedagogy. In an era where language minority students are present in our classrooms, Hagemann demonstrates how they will benefit from special teaching strategies. For those beginning a career teaching English or language arts at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
