Grammar Moves: Shaping Who You are

Paperback

Grammar Moves: Shaping Who You Are  helps students understand how the grammatical moves they make reveal their personality traits and present their persona to their readers. 

 

The textâ s rhetorical approach emphasizes the transformative power that grammar choices can have on a writer and helps students develop the personality the wish to portray in their writing.  Writers can use the imperative mood to suggest control, colons to be assertive, parenthesis to keep the conversation real, and even commas to present an organized persona.  By showing students how seemingly small choices can help them manage the impression they make on readers, Grammar Moves: Shaping Who You Are helps students become more deliberate writers.
