NCTE's Assembly for the Teaching of English Grammar provides this much-needed resource for Kâ€“college teachers who wonder what to do about grammar—how to teach it, how to apply it, how to learn what they themselves were never taught. Grammar Alive! offers teachers ways to negotiate the often conflicting goals of testing, confident writing, the culturally inclusive classroom, and the teaching of Standard English while also honoring other varieties of English. This hands-on approach to grammar in the classroom includes numerous examples and practical vignettes describing real teachers' real classroom experiences with specific grammar lessons—including ESL issues—as well as a review of grammar basics.
