I am trying to decide which book to start with from Jeff Anderson? Mechanically Inclined, or Everyday Editing?

I have both and believe both are excellent, but the one that made me a better teacher is Everyday Editing. I follow his procedure and love it...and the kids do, too. I like his writing style--I'll bet he's a nice guy and a good teacher.

I am not familiar with these books. Does Everyday Editing have samples of text to use in editing lessons? Is it a how to book only, or does it also have actual lessons included? I teach 4th grade. Is it a book useful for that age?

Thanks! I am always looking for a way to present writing/editing/revising in an interesing way!

Jeff Anderson is excellent and he espouses using the context--like writer's conferences--to teach grammar. No lessons in isolation, no DOL or anything like that. It also involves teaching grammar for rhetorical purposes, not just the "rules."

Thanks! I will check it out! It seems like with everything we have to teach in ELA, that grammar can fall by the wayside. Hopefully this book will help with that.
