Summary: Middle-school teacher, Jeff Anderson has discovered that nearly all teachers struggle to find ways of making the mechanics of English meaningful to kids and that many students are not grasping the basics that allow them to reach their potential as writers. Mechanically Inclined is the culmination of years of experimentation that merges the best of writer's workshop elements with relevant theory about how and why skills should be taught. It shifts the negative, rule-plagued emphasis of much grammar instruction into one which celebrates the power and beauty these tools have in shaping all forms.
