This group of three leaflets summarizes the grammatical content of England's National Literacy Strategy course "Grammar for Writing." The leaflets are entitled: (1) "From Word to Text"; (2) "From Sentence to Text"; and (3) "From Grammar to Writing." The first leaflet notes that today teaching grammar is about how people put words together to make meaning--to explore and express ideas. The second leaflet describes how people put language together by constructing sentences. It states that if writing is to be intelligible, it must be produced in coherent sentences, clearly linked together to produce a "joined up" message. The third leaflet looks at ways of using grammatical knowledge from the first and second leaflets to improve children's writing, noting that teachers should help students cultivate a feeling for grammar, varying and controlling sentence structure with ease, to create different language effects. The third leaflet offers this teaching sequence for writing: shared reading; sentence level work--defining principles; shared writing; independent and guided writing; and review. (NKA)
