Image Grammar, Second Edition

Teaching Grammar as Part of the Writing Process

"With Image Grammar, visual images are everything," says author Harry Noden. "This is why both teachers with struggling students and those with AP students have embraced the book through 15 printings."

Each chapter is divided into two sections: concepts that show how professional writers develop their art and lesson strategies to implement these concepts in the classroom. New and expanded concepts in the second edition include:

  • an introduction to grammatical chunks
  • expanded discussion of the five basic brush strokes and examination of advanced brush strokes
  • presentation on the nonfiction model
  • explanation of the character wheel—a visual aid that helps students to write both a nonfiction and fiction character sketch.

Plus, the updated and expanded CD includes customizable files of the 60+ strategies; reproducible handouts; images and quotes for projection in the classroom; and dozens of weblinks.
