Lesson Plans for Teachers

January 2019: BREAKING NEWS! My lesson plans are available in e-book and workbook form. Are you a teacher seeking a fresh way to teach writing to students of all ages? I want to help you. I’ve created two suites of lessons plans to accompany Sin and Syntax. They are envisioned to take you through two separate semester-long courses. The e-book is available for $4.99 on multiple platforms: The first of the two semester-long courses focuses on grammar and writing. It is suitable for high school, college, and professional-level students. (For a taste of the lesson plans, see this page.) The second suite focuses more on the "Music" section of Sin and Syntax, encouraging more advanced writers to explore their own voices and to experiment with literary devices like metaphor, melody, and rhythm.

If you would like to print the handouts in the e-book for your students, they are available in PDF form here. I recognize that some teachers would prefer a good old-fashioned book to an e-book. I have printed out a few hard copies of the e-book material, as an 8.5" x 11" spiral-bound workbook. It will stand on your bookshelf, it will flop open on your desk, it will fold easily so you can reproduce handouts and quizzes. My cost to print it is $25. I can mail it to you at book rate. If you're interested, please email me connie[at]sinandsyntax.com. There are also posts in "Talking School," the teacher’s area of this Web site. Enjoy! Keep doing the wonderful work you do in teaching writing and let me know if there are additional resources I can help you with. I so respect what you do.
