"This informal and inviting book offers a much-needed resource for the many K-12 teachers who wonder what to do about grammar - how to teach it, how to apply it, how to learn what they themselves were never taught. It provides teachers a way to negotiate the often conflicting goals of high-stakes testing, confident writing, the culturally inclusive classroom, and the teaching of standard English while also honoring other varieties of English. Novice and veteran teachers alike will appreciate the hands-on approach to grammar in the classroom that includes numerous examples and practical vignettes describing real teachers' real classroom experiences with specific grammar lessons - including ESL issues - as well as the chapters that review grammar basics. A grammar glossary and annotated list of sources are also included."

Arranged from aa (a type of lava) to Zzz-zzz-zzz (snoring), this book of many happy returns will have everybody reading not only between the lines, but north, south, east, and west along them. Michael Donner, former editor of Games magazine, not only reveals and interprets classic palindromes, such as A man, a plan, a canal: Panama, he offers hundreds of strange and delightful originals. Even better, he takes us on a magical mystery tour of palindromic places, such as Adaven, Nevada; Apollo, PA; and Ekalaka Lake, Montana. The whimsical and erudite commentaries are as much fun as the "dromes" themselves.
