Book Synopsis

Author Jeff Anderson and literacy coach Whitney La Rocca introduce a vibrant approach to grammar instruction in Patterns of Power: Inviting Young Writers into the Conventions of Language, Grades 1-5. Instead of chanting grammar rules or completing worksheets, young writers are invited to explore conventions as special effects devices that activate meaning. Students study authentic texts and come to recognize these "pattern of power" - the essential grammar conventions that readers and writers require to make sense of language.

Patterns of Power provides:

  • Over 70 practical, ready-to-use lessons
  • Tips and Power Notes that will work for any level of writer
  • Numerous mentor texts curated for Grades 1-5
  • Ways to help students find their purpose in writing
  • Classroom examples to apply new knowledge gained

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