qThis informal and inviting book offers a much-needed resource for the many K-12 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. It provides teachers a way to negotiate the often conflicting goals of high-stakes testing, confident writing, the culturally inclusive classroom, and the teaching of standard English while also honoring other varieties of English. Novice and veteran teachers alike will appreciate the hands-on approach to grammar in the classroom that includes numerous examples and practical vignettes describing real teachers' real classroom experiences with specific grammar lessons - including ESL issues - as well as the chapters that review grammar basics. A grammar glossary and annotated list of sources are also included.qShe becomes even more of an outcast and is accused of witchcraft when she befriends a deaf man and teaches him to communicate. 5.40 Jukes, Mavis.
