Hi Johannes,

I am not sure exactly what you are looking for.  Teaching grammars (in 
contrast to reference grammars)?  If so, for what level?

Alviero Niccacci used his grammar for intermediate level classes, _The 
Syntax of the Verb in Classical Hebrew Prose_ trans. W.G.E. Watson. 
Sheffield: Sheffield Academic Press, 1990.

If you want reading materials for an intermediate class a bibliography 
for personal study we can give you ten or twenty titles.
