When I am not watching TV or thinking about painting the other bedroom I am waging a constant grammar debate in my head. What the value is. What I taught last year. How that needs to change this year. What the purpose of learning a predicate adjective is.
I got two books from the library. Grammar in Context by Constance Weaver and Understanding Written Grammar by Jane Walpole. Then I bought Breaking the Rules: Liberating Writers Through Innovative Grammar Instruction, which I am currently reading. I have also bought but have not yet received Crafting Expository Argument: Practical Approaches to the Writing Process for Students and Teachers Fourth Edition.
That is keeping me busy for now. Perhaps more posts to come as I think everything through.
