There are interesting ideas in "M. Celce-Murica and S. Hilles, Techniques and Resources in Teaching Grammar" This is an excellent book with a new approach to teaching grammar.

I've found that choosing an interesting & relevant theme, designing your lesson plans so that they're participatory, and keeping all activities well-paced are some of the most important factors to consider when teaching grammar to high school students.

Hi,
making grammar interesting for teenagers is quite a difficult task. As to practising grammar what I find useful is The grammar activity book - Bob Olbee. There are many funny and interesting activities and games suitable for high school Ss. When I present some new grammar I use very often MIND MAPS. I think it's perfect for keeping Ss awake and it also help them to concentrate more and remember the new grammar better and faster, you can use a lot of colours and pictures and in my experience Ss love it!
