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.

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.

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.

Vygotsky and Literacy Research

Author: Peter Smagorinsky

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9460916961

Category: Education

Page: 304

View: 6694

In this book Peter Smagorinsky reconsiders his many publications employing Vygotsky’s theory of culturally-mediated human development and applies them, through a unified and coherent series of chapters, to literacy research. This exploration takes previously-published work and incorporates it into a new and sustained argument regarding the application of Vygotsky’s ideas to current questions regarding the nature of literacy and how to investigate it as a cultural phenomenon that contributes to human growth in social context. To conduct this inquiry, Smagorinsky first provides an overview that contextualizes Vygotsky both in his own time and in efforts to extrapolate from his Soviet origins to the 21st Century world. This consideration includes attention to the current context for literacy studies. He then reviews current conceptions of literacy in the realms of reading, writing, and additional tool use, grounding each in a Vygotskian perspective. The book’s final chapters take a critical look at both research method and the writing of research reports, taking into account both research and research reports as social constructions based in disciplinary practices. On the whole, this volume makes an important contribution to Vygotskian studies and literacy research through the author’s careful alignment between theory and practice.

Nach dem Tod von Henrys Bruder wird der Vater depressiv und die Mutter arbeitet hart, um die Familie durchzubringen. Da ist es ein Glück, dass Henry einen Aushilfsjob im Laden von Mr Hairston findet. Die Boshaftigkeit und der abgrundtiefe Menschenhass des Ladenbesitzers belasten den Jungen psychisch aber immer mehr. Endlich heckt er in seiner Not einen teuflischen Plan aus. Er zerstört einem alten Mann, der den Holocaust überlebt hat und mit dem er im Kunstzentrum Freundschaft geschlossen hat, dessen geschnitzte Skulptur und verhindert so eine Ausstellung dieses Kunstwerks. Nach seiner üblen Tat findet Henry aber doch den Mut, Mr Hairston die Stirn zu bieten. Er entlarvt ihn als bösartigen, bisweilen auch gewalttätigen Mann und verlässt den Laden für immer. In seinen abendlichen Gebeten, in denen er um Vergebung für das, was er dem alten Juden angetan hat, bittet, schliesst er aber auch den Ladenbesitzer mit ein. Die spannende Geschichte schildert auf eindrückliche und differenzierte Art und Weise die geistig-seelische Entwicklung eines Jugendlichen. (Quelle: Verzeichnis ZKL).
