Amy's most recent book for NCTE is Engaging Grammar: Practical Advice for Real Classrooms. Amy's workshops in grammar instruction show teachers how to use visuals, manipulatives, and patterns to capitalize on students' innate knowledge of how language works. Amy's workshop topics also include reading comprehension strategies for secondary classrooms and content area writing, based on her new book, But I'm Not A Reading Teacher. Amy's Writing in the Content Areas is considered a seminal resource in the field.
