If John Lennon, Gertrude Stein, Stephen Hawking, and Mother Goose had conspired to teach a course in grammar GRAM-O-RAMA would be it. This is not your grandma’s grammar class. Creative students who love word play, music, rhythm, sketch comedy, performance, nonsense, and the circusy possibilities of language write exercises to specific prompts from Daphne Athas’s maverick text and learn the joys of breaking the rules of grammar to understand why we have them.
The Daphne Athas Fund supports the teaching of Gramorama in hiring visiting drama coaches and videographer to tape performances. Contributions may be made this way: just go to https://give.unc.edu/
