Grammar-Writing Connections teaches intermediate students the grammar items and structures that will give a more literate and natural sound to their writing. Unlike most other textbooks that are available, Grammar-Writing Connections goes beyond teaching the writing process so as to provide instruction on the grammatical tools necessary to produce good writing.
Grammar-Writing Connections reviews the grammar and common writing mistakes and then teaches grammar- and writing-related vocabulary and structures. Each unit features a variety of original exercises for practicing the grammar and includes in-class or at-home activities plus a longer writing assignment.
This textbook is also sold with the CD-ROM ESL Baseball and Other Games (978-0-472-03308-9). The CD-ROM offers software that provides additional practice directly correlated to, but not repetitive of, the text. The software is not sold separately.
