3  Thoughts About Grammar

1. It matters and shows up in written and verbal communication even with our best and brightest students. Even our most successful professionals, leaders and public figures experience "Bad Grammar Moment(s)." 
2. Helping students to Read More Is Part of the Answer But Also Providing Them with Writing and Speaking Opportunities Helps. Journal Writing and Story Telling Hold Promise.

3. Grammar helps to define us and becomes important when applying, interviewing and obtaining a job. It clearly is part of job readiness.
