9780929895734: Idioms for Aliens: A Grammar Revue of Plays and Verse

Can a verb complain about being irregular?
Can the pronoun it suffer an identity crisis?
Can a proper noun be an insufferable snob?

Should grammar be delightfully funny?

You bet!

Idioms for Aliens is the perfect tool for taking stuffy preconceptions out of the teaching of grammar. ESOL, struggling students, or anyone that needs a light-hearted look at the sometimes baffling rules of English will love this supplement to daily grammar instruction.

Produce these plays informally in your classroom, or stage them for your school. Students may forget they’re learning as they enjoy the off-beat humor and memorable characters. Everyone will find something appealing (and informative) in these twenty-five plays and verses.

Includes a CD of Microsoft Word® files—so you can customize the scripts for your classroom—and audio recordings of three plays that you can use as models.
