Review

“Weaver shows her growth as a teacher and researcher by bringing new insight and applications to her beliefs. A good book for all teachers who have their students write.”–Writing Teacher

About the Author

For more than three decades, Constance Weaver has been one of the fields' leading voices on literacy topics ranging from the reading process to grammar instruction with writing. Reading Process & Practice first appeared in 1988 and became widely known as the most authoritative, comprehensive, and definitive book of its kind. Now available in a Brief Edition, it continues to help teaches define reading in ways that support high-quality instruction. Connie once again led the way with the 1996 publication of the bestselling Teaching Grammar in Context and its companion Lessons to Share on Teaching Grammar in Context. Since then she has expanded and deepened her insights and specific teaching ideas in The Grammar Plan Book and Grammar to Enrich and Enhance Writing. In 1996, the Michigan Council of Teachers of English honored Weaver with the Charles C. Fries award for outstanding leadership in the profession. Connie is the Heckert Professor of Reading and Writing at Miami University , Oxford, Ohio, and Professor Emerita of English at Western Michigan University .

Format: Paperback
WARNING: This book is NOT a grammar handbook. It is NOT a small-minded diatribe against the deplorable state of education today. It is NOT a frivolous "just let the kids write anyway they want" text either.
Instead, Connie Weaver has created a text that reintroduces sanity to the issue of how to teach grammar, and its kin, writing.
This text clearly explains the history of grammar and how it has been taught in history. It addresses how children learn language (and thus grammar)and what does that mean for the way we teach it.
In particular, she share the overwhelming compelling evidence of numerous studies that we can not teach grammar in isolation through drills and worksheets.
What is then WONDERFUL about this text is that she goes on to show what DOES work in teaching grammar to students. She outlines specific lessons and how and why they work. And, of course, she backs it up with some research from the field.
Anyone who plans on being a teacher in elementary or a language arts teacher in the higher grades should be REQUIRED to read this book. Parents who want to know how their children can benefit from grammar instruction combined with whole language ideals (reading and writing) should read this.

Constance Weaver is a saint in tackling grammar in the classroom with theories and useful techniques. For language arts or English literature instructors and teachers, this book is a requirement in understanding and the development of reading and writing skills.

This book is not for everybody's taste. For those teachers who are struggling in teaching grammar in the classroom, this book can help clarify answers to several questions about grammatical instruction.

I've not finished it yet, but so far, this book is very insightful into many things vital to the grammar learning of students. A little dry at times, this book, however, helps one to understand issues with grammar as it pertains to student learning.

If you are looking for a book to help explain why teaching grammar in context is important, this is a good book. I wanted a few more examples in it. I found it paired nicely with The Grammar Plan Book (Weaver) and Mechanically Inclined.
