"I love this book! It is definitely the right book at the right time for middle school teachers. The Common Core Grammar Toolkit provides clear explanations of each standards-required grammatical concept using exemplary mentor sentences (my favorite part!) plus practical tips for helping students apply these concepts to their own writing (my other favorite part!). This is a perfect text for helping teachers achieve the goal of teaching grammar in the context of writing instruction."
--Elizabeth Dinkins, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Literacy and Language Arts Education, Bellarmine University, KY
"By couching grammar instruction in the context of good writing and using high-interest mentor texts, this book actually made me excited to teach grammar! I gained a deeper understanding of the standards myself, and thanks to the classroom snapshots and recommendations, I feel confident that I can implement this same engaging instruction in my own classroom."
