Learning Happens Everywhere

The Zen of Grammar

Target Audience:   K-12 Teachers, Department Chairs, Curriculum Coordinators

Length of Time:   OPTIONS: Half Day, Full Day


In this workshop, participants will be shown a holistic way to teach grammar, drawing on language from usage in writing and text.

Rather than itemize and atomize, this proven method works because it looks at how English is actually used by students–as readers and writers and also embraces the quirks and irregularities that seem to be the rule rather than the exception.

Participants will:
  • Be shown a new approach to teaching grammar
  • Examine samples of student work
  • Acquire and Assess sample curriculum materials
