Description:

This is the most exciting resource for teaching writing and grammar that I've seen in years! . . . Certain to become a classic in the field. - Constance Weaver, Author of Teaching Grammar in Context Image Grammar is an exciting resource that is both inspirational and immensely practical for all teachers who know the importance of integrating grammar and writing. - English Journal For decades, scholars have urged teachers to integrate grammar and writing, yet few have provided teachers with enough strategies and materials to do so. With this ground-breaking book, Harry Noden meets this need in a unique way. Image Grammar is based on the premise that a writer is much like an artist who "paints" images, using grammatical structures as tools. In presenting this approach, Noden divides chapters into two sections: concepts and strategies. The concepts illustrate how professional writers have used "image grammar" to develop their art; while the strategies provide teachers with classroom-tested lessons to help students discover what Joan Didion calls the "infinite power of grammar." This book comes with a companion CD containing more than sixty complete lesson strategies and one hundred illustrative examplesall of which are ready for use at the push of a button. The CD works with any Web browser, contains dozens of images to stimulate student writing, and features more than eighty links to thousands of additional images. Above all, this is both a practical and time-saving book. Every concept described can be put to immediate use, saving teachers countless hours of preparation.
