Research over the last decade has confirmed that explicit instruction in the rules of grammar helps students achieve higher levels of academic language proficiency. However, many teachers came of age during an era when grammar was not explicitly taught, and many instructional programs do not provide teachers with the information and strategies they need to effectively teach grammar to their students. Even the most knowledgeable teachers may be stumped when students ask about grammatical concepts such as the difference between this and that, or when inquiring minds want to know why someone would say, “It’s raining cats and dogs.” Trying to explain comma usage can be difficult even for the most experienced teacher. How Do I Teach This and That? is a resource that provides straightforward explanations of grammatical concepts as well as strategies and activities educators can use to teach this content to students. The information in How Do I Teach This and That? is organized alphabetically, making it very easy to use. Each entry describes the grammatical form or concept, tells how to use it, provides examples, offers teaching suggestions/activities, ad includes special notes. This resource also includes a picture file with full-color photographs that can be used with many of the student activities.
