This group is created to continue the conversation around grammar and teaching grammar to our students in the context of reading and writing.

The resources you can access below were developed by educators from across Michigan dedicated to the creation of instructional tools that support effective grammar instruction in the context of writing.

These educators specifically created tools you can access below all centered around grammar including:

  • Grammar glossaries
  • Grammar calendars
  • Mini Lessons written for appropriate CCSS Language Standards

Work influenced by the following resources:

Primary Resource:  The Power of Grammar by Mary Ehrenworth and Vicki Vinton

Grammar is the gatekeeper to a culture of power, yet it is also the power behind the startling beauty and robustness of the English language. In The Power of Grammar , Mary Ehrenworth and Vicki Vinton show you how these two notions of power can help your grammar instruction address the practical and aesthetic needs of your student writers.

 Sentence Composing by Kilgallon, The Grammar Plan Book by Constance Weaver and Mechanically Inclined and Everyday Editing by Jeff Anderson

Research:  Writing Next Report as well as the research highlighted by Constance Weaver

  • How do I join this group?
  • Does anyone know where the 7th and 8th grade grammar glossaries are for the work we did last August 2014 in Grand Rapids at Innovative High School? I am trying to share with my collugues, but can't seem to locate it. Thanks Tori
    • Tori,
      Sorry for the delayed response but the final edits of the grammar work are now up and linked here at the Grammar that Transfers work. Visit the 7th and 8th Grade links above and scroll to the bottom of the calendars. The glossaries are linked there. Let me know if you have any trouble. Mark Raffler -
