Grammar for Middle School: A Sentence-Composing Approach gives your students the chance to absorb and replicate the grammatical structures used by some of the best writers of our times. Included among the over 150 authors, 200 titles, and 400 model sentences in Grammar for Middle School are award-winning young-adult literature such as Cynthia Voigt's Homecoming, popular favorites like J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter, and curricular staples such as John Steinbeck's The Red Pony and The Pearl. Fourteen grammatical structures are developed in the same predictable, understandable manner, using the sentence-composing approach. When students first encounter a tool, it is clearly defined and characterized. Then it's practiced through five activities: matching, unscrambling, combining, imitating, and expanding. Finally, a creative writing activity immerses students in the composition or revision of a paragraph through independent use of the sentence--composing tools they have already learned.

Following the success of their Sentence-Composing series and their Grammar: A Sentence-Composing Approach series, Don and Jenny Killgallon present a new series, Paragraphs: A Sentence-Composing Approach. Paragraphs for Middle School: A Sentence-Composing Approach gives students new tools to write mature and varied sentences through imitating models by authors like Louis Sachar, Suzanne Collins, Gary Paulsen, J. R. R. Tolkien, Carl Hiassen, Rick Riordan, J. K. Rowling, and many others. Now, in this worktext, the Killgallons take the approach a step further by teaching students tools authors use to build paragraphs. Using power tools in four places to build better sentences-the opener, the S-V split, the closer, and the mix-and four techniques for building better paragraphs-expanding paragraphs, imitating paragraphs, unscrambling paragraphs, and building paragraphs-students achieve a goal of good writing: elaboration. Through the activities in this book, students: imitate how their favorite authors build sentences and paragraphs eliminate common sentence boundary problems--fragments, run-ons, comma splices learn, practice, and use the tools that foster elaboration in paragraphs. With recognizable authors as their mentors, students build confidence as their writing becomes more meaningful and masterful. Download the Teacher's Booklet SAVE $19.50 when you buy in a 10 Pack!

Across America, in thousands of classrooms, from elementary school to high school, the time-tested sentence-composing approach has given students tools to become better writers. Now the Killgallons present a much anticipated sentence-composing grammar worktext for college writing. GRAMMAR FOR COLLEGE WRITING: A Sentence-Composing Approach presents a new and easier way to understand grammar: NOUN GROUP: The Naming Tools VERB GROUP: The Narrating Tools ADJECTIVE GROUP: The Describing Tools ADVERB GROUP: The Explaining Tools Within each group, using model sentences by authors, students learn and practice words, phrases, and clauses that share the group's function. The Killgallons' accessible approach develops students' use of twenty-one grammatical tools to build sentences like those of recognizable authors. All tools are practiced through the Killgallons' signature methods: matching, unscrambling, combining, imitating, exchanging, expanding. Each tool is introduced with a clear definition and characteristics; practiced through six varied sentence-composing activities; then applied in an academic or creative composition that spotlights the tool. Students learn from model sentences chosen for two reasons: their grammatical structure (the sentence in the story) and their interesting content (the story in the sentence). GRAMMAR FOR COLLEGE WRITING gives students the chance to absorb and replicate the grammatical tools used by John Steinbeck, J. K. Rowling, Ernest Hemingway, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Truman Capote, Stephen King, and hundreds more. This worktext works beyond preparing first-year college students for college writing. It is well suited for many contexts: Before College- Students in honors or AP classes Students in grammar or creative writing electives. During College- Students in required first-year writing courses, or electives in grammar, rhetoric, style, linguistics, literary language, or creative writing Prospective English teachers in methods, grammar, or linguistics courses. After College- Teachers participating in curriculum or in-service workshops Teachers wanting a self-study approach to learning grammar to improve their own or their students' writing. An online instructor's manual includes background information, advice, tips, resources, and the original professional sentences used for activities. GRAMMAR FOR COLLEGE WRITING: A Sentence-Composing Approach is the most comprehensive worktext yet from the originators of that approach: the Killgallons. Guide your students toward mastery of the "grammar of the greats" by inviting hundreds of great authors to serve as their mentors-and the Killgallons as their guides.
