Overview

It is often taken for granted that teachers know enough about English grammar to be able to teach it effectively; however, in practice, their command of this area varies on an individual basis. Moreover, grammar teaching itself poses certain challenges which sets it apart from the teaching of other facets of language, such as vocabulary, or the so-called four macro-skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. This course is intended to provide students with knowledge and expertise in grammar teaching.

In this course, students will learn about the main grammatical structures of English, and about the academic foundations of grammar pedagogy. The course will build on this foundation by showing students how to teach these structures to learners in a meaningful and effective way. It will also allow students to address the needs of their particular language and literacy context.
