The ladder of what? The unleashed associative power of what?

This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Grammar: 4 Concepts to Improve Your Reading and Writing Forever

Quote:
Fake grammar hides in such rules as "never split an infinitive" or "never end a sentence with a preposition."

There's another approach that offers great, practical promise to anyone who wants to work and live inside the English language--rhetorical grammar.

In this special Webinar in honor of National Grammar Day, we will explore new strategies with the author of The Glamour of Grammar, Roy Peter Clark.

Clark, one of the nation's top writing coaches, will show you how this approach will make your writing clear, reveal what is most important and make someone laugh or cry. He will show you how to turn your ideas into action, and improve the quality of your reading, your writing and your speaking.

At Poynter's NewsU, we love the craft of writing. So we're offering this Webinar at a special National Grammar Day rate of $9.95. Plus, we will be giving away copies of his book during the live Webinar on March 4, so you want to make sure you're there and stay for the book giveaway. It's part of our National Grammar Day Celebration that includes a special #grammarday contest to win a NewsU prize pack.

Clark will also be talking about grammar in a special writing chat at Poynter.org following Monday's Webinar.
What Will I Learn:

How to match your language to meet the needs and requirements of your language community
How to order your words for emphasis
How to climb up and down the ladder of language
How to unleash the associative power of language

Who Should Take this Course:

Anyone who wants to improve the quality of their reading, writing and speaking.

[Poynter]
