Grammar

I have taught for 39 years, focusing on literature and language arts. My strengths in language arts have been creating a writer's workshop incorporating expository, persuasive, and narrative writings. In order for my students to write well, they need a strong handle for grammar skills. I have taught them to allow their voices to be heard in their writing; and if they have strong language skills, they will succeed.
