Image Grammar if a very successful classroom practice. It goes beyond grammar and lends style to your students' writing.
In Harry Noden's Image Grammar, he teaches us, whether we be teachers of writers or writers ourselves, that there is method to the magic made by our most talented writers. He shows us, in a way that is practical, and crystal clear, the grammatical structures used by our best writers, giving examples of the techniques, and breaking them down so that the techniques can be applied by writers and student writers. He gives us tested classroom strategies useful in teaching the structures or in applying them, again, in our own writings.
Image Grammar has taught me much as a writer and has allowed my 7th and 8th grade students to write on a new level, with a new passion, and using professional writing structures and written images I'd never known kids could produce. In its impact on teaching writing, Image Grammar is revolutionary. And once you see how the magic is done, you'll never write, teach writing, or even read writing in the same way again.
I wish I had this book earlier. The book seemed to drag a little in the last one-third of the book. But, given the overwhelming amount of useful material presented by the author, I have to rate the book most highly. This book is appropriate for individual writers as well as writing instructors.
The author provides an extensive bibliography, which has now set me off on a chase for those books he recommended.
