About the Author

I’m Dan Roth, and I am an Associate Professor in the English Department at Oakton College. Previously I’ve worked as an educator for over a decade in the Bay Area of California. I enjoy working with my students, who constantly show me new ways to see the world.

I bring a background both in formal linguistics (think Noam Chomsky) and writing studies (think David Bartholomae). I cover this topic not because grammar is the most important thing we teach, but because most writing teachers are expected to cover it, and in my research, I found a dearth of professional literature that enables us to do so in a way that’s thoughtful, progressive, and informed by Linguistic research. My blog aims to give other teachers quick access to such a resource.
