What does teaching grammar in context actually mean? And more importantly what are some ways I can transform grammar instruction so kids will actually pay attention and use it in their speaking and writing. Come explore what research says and apply it to what we actually do in our classrooms on a day-to-day basis.
Jeff Anderson has taught writing and reading for over 18 years. Over his career, Jeff has worked with writers in grades K-12, focusing in grades 4-8. Jeff’s passion is motivating and developing struggling writers with instructional strategies such as writer’s workshop and process writing, with a particular interest in making editing and grammar in context a meaning-making experience for students and teachers. Jeff has written articles in NCTE's Voices from the Middle, English Journal, as well as an article on motivating struggling writers in ASCD's Educational Leadership. NCTE recently awarded Jeff with the Paul and Kate Farmer Award. He has published a book, Mechanically Inclined: Building Grammar, Usage, and Style into Writer's Workshop, and a DVD filmed in his inner-city classroom, The Craft of Grammar.
