Groovy Grammar at Brave Writer Starts January 4!

On January 4 I will begin teaching The Groovy Grammar Workshop on Brave Writer. Designed for families who are stymied by or just plain “hate” grammar, but also loads of fun for grammar-lovers, Groovy Grammar relies on word games to show the underlying philosophy behind grammar usage, allowing families to discover how the English language works through writing their own “grammar rules,” creating a “fictionary,” and then composing their own nonsense poems based on Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky.”

Join me for four weeks of word-playing fun for the whole family! We’ve even had Dads join in the fun of Groovy Grammar in past years–truly this class will make your family see grammar in a whole new light! Plus you’ll have this grammar-lover’s expertise at your very fingertips throughout the class, ready to answer any niggly grammar issue that has plagued you in the wee small hours of wakeful nights…. 🙂

The Groovy Grammar Workshop at Brave Writer: January 4-28, 2011 in our beautiful new Brave Writer Classroom!

    that sounds like fun! grammar mistakes {mine or others’} are a pet peeve of mine!

  2. I agree. But learning how words work together really helps to create an understanding of how grammar applies to our every day writing. I love teaching this class–so many great “a-hah!” moments! 🙂
