Patterns of Power
Inviting Young Writers into the Conventions of Language, Grades 1-5

Instead of chanting grammar rules or completing countless convention worksheets, Jeff Anderson and literacy coach Whitney La Rocca invite young writers to explore conventions as special effects devices that activate meaning. Their students study authentic texts and come to recognize these "patterns of power"β€”the essential grammar conventions that readers and writers require to make meaning.

The first part of the book introduces a way of thinking about grammar instruction and sets up everything you need to immerse yourself in the process of inviting elementary students to experiment and play with language. The second part of the book offers over seventy practical, ready-to-use lessons.

Patterns of Power invites you to take just five minutes from your reading workshop and five minutes from your writing workshop to focus on conventions. Those ten minutes will have a miraculous effect on your students' understanding of how language works for readers and writers.
