Does the word "grammar" instill fear in the hearts of your students? Do you have nightmares of grammar drills from the Language Arts classes of your youth? Would you like to be more confident in your own knowledge of grammar, usage, and mechanics? This course will help you to become more comfortable and confident in grammar instruction. You will have the opportunity to design lessons that embed the teaching of grammar into the writing process. You will learn where to find answers to more obscure questions about the rules of the English language. In addition, you will get experience in providing the "hooks" that will help your students learn necessary grammar skills essential to the Common Core Standards.
“The instructors were very knowledgeable in conventions and mechanics. The practical lessons are very beneficial for me as a teacher.”
