Thank you for exploring Between the Commas by Martin Brandt.

Between the Commas

In this sample, read the Table of Contents, the Foreword by Tom Newkirk, and the Introduction, in which Marty describes “three questions I could not answer” about a favorite mentor text that ultimately inspired Between the Commas:

  • What’s going on in those sentences that makes them flow like that?
  • Why can’t my students write sentences like that?
  • Why can’t I teach them to write sentences like that??
