Mechanically Inclined by Jeff Anderson
potential as writers.
In Mechanically Inclined, the culmination of years of experimentation, Jeff merges the best elements of writer’s workshop with relevant theory about how and why grammar skills should be taught. Jeff connects theory about using grammar in context with practical instructional strategies, explains why kids often don’t understand or apply grammar and mechanics correctly, focuses on attending to the “high payoff” (or most common errors in student writing), and
shows how to carefully construct a workshop environment that can best support grammar and mechanics.
