I can't find an article SWB linked about grammar and writing and I need it tonight!

Recommended Posts

I thought it was on one of her blogs, but maybe it was linked here. This was just before the boards changed. Can anyone help?


It was about explicitly teaching grammar so kids could write, and it detailed the huge writing improvements when kids were given detailed and explicit instruction. The gist was that it was in a disadvantaged school, but after they were given specific instruction on grammar and on the meanings of transition words, among other things, they could express complex thought in a way no one had ever taught them before.


Gahhh--I need it tonight!


Thanks so much!
