Between the Commas AudioBook Summary

For too long, sentence instruction has been heavy on correctness and terminology (as in “mind your grammar”) and light on play and experimentation. Or it has been abandoned altogether. In this lively book, Marty Brandt sets out to change all that.

It is partly the story of a teacher hitting a plateau in mid-career, deeply frustrated by the flatness of his students’ writing, particularly as they struggled with more academic tasks. But it also tells the story of important but neglected research in sentence instruction, which Brandt revives, reinventing his instruction by explicitly teaching the possibilities of sentences.

In Between the Commas, he identifies three “pillars” of sentence instruction:

  • Sentence focus: Identifying the true subject of the sentence
  • Sentence development: Finding ways to expand and modify, “between the commas”
  • Sentence coherence: Connecting sentences to show the flow of thought

To help his students understand these concepts, Brandt invents his own terms – the dime-dropper, smack-talker, ingBomb, sentence wannabe, and the not/but – to describe key moves a writer can make, illustrating them with both student and professional examples. The book is also filled with practical exercises in sentence manipulation that can be used directly in your classroom or modified for your students.
