Patterns of Power: inviting young writers into the conventions of language, pow
grades 1-5
Jeff Anderson and literacy coach Whitney La Rocca take you into primary and intermediate classrooms where students are curious about language, engage with the world around them, and notice and experiment with the conventions all writers use. Instead of chanting grammar rules or completing countless convention worksheets, we invite young writers to explore conventions as special effects devices that activate meaning. Our students study authentic texts and come to recognize these “patterns of power”—the essential grammar conventions that readers and writers require to make meaning.
The first part of the book introduces a vibrant approach to grammar instruction and sets up what you need to immerse yourself in the Patterns of Power process, inviting students to experiment and play with language. The second part of the book offers over seventy practical, ready-to-use lessons, including:
•Extensive support materials
•Over 100 mentor sentences, curated for grades 1-5
•Student work samples
•Tips and power notes to facilitate your own knowledge and learning
•Examples for application

Books for that discuss Character, Feelings, Social Responsibility and more:
