HS English classes have really become so dysfunctional that I’m not sure that students even believe that they can ‘get’ very common punctuation rules. Come on guys – this isn’t brain surgery! It’s just grammar! And believe me – you can get this! Everyone can get this!
From the first day, Clamdigging engaged us, with dialogue and "pics." It's filled with helpful hints and tricks to understand and remember complex grammar rules. I still have my copy!
By the time I finished teaching the Clamdigging course, I fell in love with it. Now as a full-time English instructor, I can’t imagine using any other grammar book in my sophomore level English class.
Mr. Lund’s writing has given the Clamdigging book a sense that it is alive!
The sly humor and fun memory sentences made learning grammar enjoyable and effective.
"Clamdigging" for me was a whole new way of learning grammar. It put a fun twist onto learning. It allowed me to see it with funny examples and cool font so it was easier to remember and more exciting to look at.
Mr. Lund’s book makes a subject that is often dry, tedious, or confusing, simple and memorable. I have used Mr. Lund’s Guide to Professional Clamdigging to reinforce knowledge of grammar principles and improve students’ writing for over 6 years. I highly recommend you try it!
