[The book] is a reference and review grammar for second- and third- year German students who are familiar with the basics of German vocabulary and grammar. It can be used either as a primary text or as a reference manual in conjunction with other materials, such as literature readers. Its goal is two-fold: (1) to present clear and complete explanations of all major grammar topics, and (2) to provide meaningful, communicative practice of those topics. There is abundant oral group and pair work, as well as generous attention to writing strategies, the material can be used in course sequences lasting anywhere from one to four semesters (one to six quarters). -Introd. [The book] is more than just a grammar review. It is also a reference book, a practice manual, and a practical communication guide. -Back cover.

About the author (1997)

Larry D. Wells (late) Professor Larry Wells was respected by all who knew him as an outstanding teacher of German who loved the German language and wanted to make it accessible to students. He championed student -centered, communicative learning that made students active partners in the classroom. Professor Wells received his Ph.D. from Ohio State with a specialization in l9th century German literature. His publications "Literary Texts in Language Instruction," Mitlesen-Mitteilen: Literary Texts for Reading, Speaking & Writing (with Rosmarie T. Morewedge) and Handbuch zur deutschen Grammatik, Wiederholen und Anwenden, are considered by most educators in German as benchmarks in the field of German language instruction.
