9780618155729: Grammar to Go

With Grammar to Go, students gain a broad understanding of the basic patterns and structures of English. As students begin to diagram sentences, the rules of grammar become ingrained over time rather than through rote memorization. Students learn the parts of speech by evaluating each word's position and function within a sentence. Through this practice-oriented approach, students become actively invested in the learning process, using their critical-thinking skills to move incrementally from simple to more complex sentence patterns.

  • Boxed features throughout the text cover quick tips, the parts of speech, and common grammatical errors.
  • Extensive examples and exercises reinforce each new concept, eliminating the need for a separate workbook. In addition, students can review and practice applying skills at the end of each chapter.
  • Students memorize only what they need at appropriate intervals, rather than a long list of terms at once.
  • The authors' engaging, accessible instruction draws students' interest without diluting the content for developmental courses.

About the Author:

Barbara Goldstein, Professor of English, has taught English composition and English grammar at Hillsborough Community College for more than 20 years. After serving as Dean of the Associate in Arts program at the Dale Mabry campus for four years, Dr. Goldstein returned to her first love, the classroom. A recipient of the Florida Association of Community College's Curriculum Commission Exemplary Practice award, she was the first director of the award-winning HCC Writing Center and currently serves as the center's faculty advisor.

Jack Waugh currently teaches World Humanities, Asian Humanities, and Honors World Humanities at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, Florida. He serves as Program Manager for the Humanities Department. His keen interest in English grammar began when he learned diagramming from a college professor who required her students to diagram thirty sentences per class period for an entire semester. Dr. Waugh taught English for 20 years and still enjoys teaching grammar and writing classes now. One of his chief joys in teaching is seeing students actually understand the rudiments of English grammar.

Except for three years of teaching high school English in Atlanta, Karen Linsky has spent her entire teaching career at Hillsborough Community College. She has taught a wide variety of courses, including Prep Writing, English Composition, American Literature, Linguistics, College Study Skills, and Leadership Development. For the past ten years, she has been very involved in the HCC Honors Institute, developing courses, teaching numerous classes, participating in conferences and extra-curricular activities, and traveling internationally with students. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Emory University, Professor Linsky received a NISOD Excellence Award from the University of Texas at Austin for her work in establishing the HCC Writing Center; she is also a certified Phi Theta Kappa Leadership Instructor.

Review:

"GRAMMAR TO GO offers students clear explanation of grammar concepts and helps them to learn to analyze their writing at the sentence level, which, in turn, should help them become better writers."

"The design has been carefully planned to guide the students sequentially through the intricacies of the English language. I believe both English-speaking students and ESL students would benefit from this text. "
