The Language Theater - a fun, fully illustrated Grammar Book © 2019 Written by Maria Beatty and Illustrated by William Skrief. THE INSPIRATION: "Language is a theater. The words are the actors". Denis Diderot. THE IDEA: In this exciting "Language Play", Master of Ceremonies, Theo the Grammarian, introduces each of the "Parts-of-Speech-Actors"! One by one these actors take stage and perform their grammatical roles & show & tell us how they all interact using engaging graphics. All illustrations are clear, simple, fun, joyful and specific. (There is nothing like it on the market.) Ending chapter exercises reinforce each actor's role and often include a drawing activity. This book is aimed at middle school students, but subsequent editions may be scaled up or down to meet all students' needs at their particular age/key development levels. THE PROBLEM: Educators of potential English-speakers/writers have long needed an exciting alternative to conquer the "learning grammar is boring" misnomer. On grammar's importance, we all can agree with author William B. Bradford: "Grammar, regardless of the country or the language, is the foundation for communication — the better the grammar, the clearer the message." Yet, only recently have so many recognized the unacceptable deterioration of English Grammar levels in schools. THE SOLUTION: The Language Theater, as it fills the need for: STUDENTS & TEACHERS - a textbook that acts out what each part of speech does in a fun way. PARENTS - an easy to understand reference book to answer their children's grammar questions. ESL (ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE) STUDENTS - an active, character-driven textbook that visually leads them to the core of the language. BUSINESSES - spending heavily in this arena, need an easy to understand reference textbook. With targeted world-wide promotion and release on multiple platforms, The Language Theater will be the go-to English grammar book for decades.
