Patterns of Power, Grades 6–8
Inviting Adolescent Writers into the Conventions of Language
“Is this right? Is this how it’s supposed to look?” Adolescent writers often ask these kinds of questions because traditional grammar instruction focuses too much on what’s right or what’s wrong. The fear of making a mistake hides the true power of conventions – the creation of meaning, purpose, and effect, the ultimate reading-writing connection.
Join Jeff Anderson, with Travis Leech and Melinda Clark, as they explore grammar in a new way in Patterns of Power: Inviting Adolescent Writers into the Conventions of Language, Grades 6–8. Let’s lift middle school writers by focusing on possibility and producing effective writing that will transfer to the classroom and beyond.
