    We wrote this book partly for our fellow college writing teachers who have wished there were an effective and efficient way to teach sentence structure and style while still giving adequate time to the writing process, critical read¬ ing, and the other important concerns of college composition. Such teach¬ ers typically find that it is impossible to teach grammar quickly. There are so many building blocks to put in place that we often give up in favor of an ad hoc approach—a lesson on clauses to curb the spread of fragments, a drill on restrictive and nonrestrictive elements to arrest comma delinquency, and so forth. Associated in the students’ minds with the errors that prompted them and disconnected from any comprehensible whole, these units are sel¬ dom a memorable part of the course.
