Description

Product Description

Jeff Anderson and literacy coach Whitney La Rocca take you into primary and intermediate classrooms where students are curious about language, engage with the world around them, and notice and experiment with the conventions all writers use. Instead of chanting grammar rules or completing countless convention worksheets, we invite young writers to explore conventions as special effects devices that activate meaning. Our students study authentic texts and come to recognize these “patterns of power”—the essential grammar conventions that readers and writers require to make meaning.
The first part of the book introduces a vibrant approach to grammar instruction and sets up what you need to immerse yourself in the Patterns of Power process, inviting students to experiment and play with language. The second part of the book offers over seventy practical, ready-to-use lessons, including:

  • Extensive support materials
  • Over 100 mentor sentences, curated for grades 1–5
  • Student work samples
  • Tips and power notes to facilitate your own knowledge and learning
  • Examples for application

In Patterns of Power Jeff and Whitney suggest that taking just five minutes from your reading workshop and five minutes from your writing workshop to focus on how the conventions connect reading and writing will miraculously affect your students’ understanding of how language works for readers and writers.

Not only is this book full of fantastic ways to make abstract grammatical concepts more concrete and accessible for young writers, it''s also designed to deepen the teacher''s conceptual understanding in ways that honor all learners-- even the grown-up ones. If you think "progressive tense" means someone named Flo is trying to angrily sell you insurance, then this is definitely the book for you!

Patterns of Power has changed the game of teaching conventions in the younger grades! The way my students write after teaching this way has changed tremendously. It has also changed the way they read; they are reading to find mentor sentences to copy in their writing! I would highly recommend this book to you if you are struggling to get your students to use conventions appropriately.

I bought this book on recommendation from the instructors of a professional development course I took on teaching writing. The content itself is wonderful! I’m excited to use this to teach grammar and writing this year. The shipping of this item was terrible!! It is a rather heavy book that was packed in a padded envelope rather than a box. As a result, the plastic spine was bent upwards and cannot be straightened. The pages will not lay flat, nor can they be folded over as is expected with a spiral-bound book. Considering the book cost over $50, it should be packed much better than it was! Amazon wants the item returned before I can be issued a refund or replacement. I don’t have a UPS location remotely close, plus I need the book for school, so I won’t bother. I just think Amazon should issue a partial refund due to the product being damaged.
