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 .

For most language arts teachers, grammar is the core of good writing and reading skills. Sadly, it's not news. In fact, Constance Weaver who authored this book provides a more clear look in helping our students developing grammar skills. First, you can't teach grammar in isolation anyway. It just doesn't work! You should teach and introduce students to literature that is fresh, exciting, and will get more kids reading regardless. We all have to develop our grammar skills even as writers. Students should not have to worry so much about all the terminology. It can be done in doses as Weaver proposes perhaps ten minutes a lesson rather spending the first month or two teaching. This book is a great and useful tool for language arts teachers who will teach grammar or improve students writing skills. All writers regardless of experience need to revise anyway. This book is a lot less threatening, calm, and resourceful without going overboard.

This is a good book for planning grammar instruction. It helps to have Constance Weaver's other book too. I found it works well with Mechanically Inclined as well.

Helpful for those of us who went in to English because we love literature but hate grammar. I plan to keep it handy.

Yeah, it's a good book, but one of the other teachers stole mine right out of the copy room. Oh, wait. Did I say copy room? Strike that. The book was never in the copy room. Repeat: never in the copy room.
