5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Grammar? All Errors Are Not Created Equal 7 de octubre de 2007
Por KC - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
Each year teachers are amazed at how little their students know about grammar, usage, and correctness. "Why don't you know this?" they ask their students. "Didn't your teacher TEACH you this last year?" Blank expressions on their faces, the kids shake their heads "no," but a visit to last year's teacher brings indignation. "I certainly DID teach them (fill in the blank with your favorite grammar term)!" she says testily -- or quizzically, depending on her mood.

Sound familiar? It does to me, which is why I bought GETTING IT RIGHT. After years of frustration with "Teflon Grammatical Memory Syndrome" and with correcting a gazillion errors on a gajillion student papers, I looked to two familiar names -- Michael Smith and Jeffrey Wilhelm -- for answers. I wasn't disappointed.

Smith and Wilhelm start with conclusive research that the teaching of grammar in isolation does not work. Then they roll up their sleeves to show us what DOES work. Essentially they argue that it is a depth vs. breadth issue when it comes to grammar. Rather than trying to teach everything, teachers should focus on what's important and most likely to benefit the students in the long run. Their two justifications for teaching a term? "1. The term is so commonly used that teachers, texts, and tests presume that students know it. 2. The term is essential to being able to explain an important issue of style or correctness."

Boiling the vast world of grammar minutiae down to 16 basic terms/concepts, Smith and Wilhelm demonstrate creative ways to teach them based on their own experiences as well as those of student teachers who have worked under their tutelage. The practical ideas will be invaluable to teachers looking for new methods of reaching their kids in this most challenging of tasks. Prompts and handout examples are provided, along with samples of typical student errors and ways to help students learn from them.

Teachers will especially appreciate the section called "A Model Sequence: Learning to Proofread." Here the authors have mercy by telling teachers to free themselves of their shackles. Circling every error on every paper is NOT productive (unless improving your own editing skills while your kids learn nothing counts as "productive"). Instead, teachers should model proofreading and provide practice on carefully selected concepts, then serve as mentors by teaching specific skills and having students serve as their own editors by focusing on errors related to those skills only. Also, peer proofreading ideas that work are spelled out -- one in particular that involves creative use of the TV series CSI. Here it means "Correct Sentence Investigators" -- and yes, the proofreaders are "agents" and the errors are the "crime" (meaning you're about to witness the unlikely marriage of "fun" and "editing").

Buy it. Read it. Use it. Most importantly, it will help your students become better writers and self-editors; less importantly (but still worthy of your consideration!) YOU will feel a little more sane and a lot more effective when you send your kids off to the next grade where they might just surprise their new teacher by saying, "Participles? Yeah, we actually DID learn how to use THEM last year!"

I find the authors' opinions and the research they use to back them up very persuasive. I liked the practical classroom examples as well. I would have appreciated more of the latter. For example, I read the book through during my semester break, and then returned to it recently as I prepped for a class, hoping to find specific ideas for handling run-on sentences. I couldn't find much beyond some sentence combining examples that were not appropriate to my class, and I couldn't even find "run on" (or "comma splice" or "fused sentences") in the index. That's fine -- I'm designing my own, and there are plenty to be found online too -- but I would have enjoyed having some more practical help at hand. So I'm glad I read it, and I have adjusted my approach to grammar instruction at least partly as a result of that reading, but I'm not sure I really need to keep it on my shelf for future reference. By the way, I'm teaching at the college level now after teaching at the high school level before, and I think the book is applicable to both settings.

These guys are amazing. When I first reviewed this book, I found myself taking notes in the margins, underlining a ton, and then thinking about how I could use all that they suggest. This is the one "How to teach grammar" guide I have actually kept on my desk year-long. They narrow the 200+ "rules" down to the essentials and then show models of how best to teach grammar in the context of student writing. You will find yourself dog-earring and then dog-earring the dog-ears.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Must-Have Resource for English Teachers 1 de julio de 2009
Por Teacher5 - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
This is, without question, the best resource I've ever found for teaching grammar. After years of trying to find the right way to help my students "get it," I have finally found my answer. They take every idea I have ever had about teaching grammar and effectively created PRACTICAL and backed-by-research strategies for the English classroom. They also question what constitutes proper English -- and who says so. I read it all the way through, then started over with my highlighter!
