Great supplement to the book

Listening to this podcast is a great resource for the Patterns of Power book. I listen on my way to school in the morning to prepare to teach the pattern for the week! Thanks for the instruction!

A breakdown of the breakdown! Brilliant!!

Jeff and Travis do a great job breaking down the PoP process into even more bite sized chunks. Can’t wait for my book to arrive!! What an awesome and practical way to teach grammar to middle school kiddos (well, all kiddos ;) )

Love it!!!

So helpful!

What a great companion to Anderson’s Patterns of Power books. Provides extremely helpful reasoning behind and guidelines for meaningful grammar instruction based on sentence imitation.
