by Mark Lester

Grammar and Usage in the Classroom addresses prospective English teachers who need both to learn basic grammar themselves and to prepare themselves to successfully teach grammar. Based on the author's extensive work with school districts, in-service teachers, and hundreds of his own students, the second edition has been thoroughly revised and reorganized into three parts: Grammar; Usage; and A Glossary of Grammatical Terms. The grammar opens with a chapter on the current state of teaching grammar and usage; presents traditional school grammar; and, in the last grammar chapter, introduces a modern descriptive grammar to analyze verb complements. For elementary and secondary teachers and English majors.

Cool book. TONS OF TYPOS. Still the activities/exercises are a great way to test your understanding of grammar.
This is a great book for teachers. It gives great tools and tests for teachers to use and give students to help them unlock grammar. However, it has many errors - many in the self-check answers section. Apparently, the wrong draft was sent to print (rumor I heard from a friend/co-worker of Lester's). I wish the publishers would print a revised edition. Without the mistakes I would give it five stars.
Great book!
With the exception of some "tests" the author has derived to check for different parts of speech, this book is quite average in its content, and the way it is organized makes it not very useful as a reference.
This book is very helpful. It was one my favorite professor used to teach grammar, and I can see why. It has many useful lessons. I like the way it covers the different areas of grammar. I would tell anybody who wants to improve their grammar to get this book!
I Love this book! It really breaks down parts of speech in really easy and entertaining ways.
but the book was a little dmage the color and the cover of this book. Good product to use in the school
It was in great shape, almost new, definitely would rent again! This is also a really good book, with all the answers to the examples in the back!
