Beyond the Worksheet - Grammar as Critical Thinking

Authentic grammar lessons are difficult, but I have found and developed various tools for teaching grammar lessons that provide students with challenging, real-world situations to work on their grammar. These involve using sentence models and combining sentence strategies through kinesthetics, technology, competition, and other engaging activities that get students thinking about syntactical structures and their connection to meaning, the use of imagery and figurative language, revision needs, and writing for multiple genres. This culminates in "real writing" scenarios, in which students apply their grammar skills to journal writing and rough drafts.
