What every teacher needs to have in their grammatical toolbox, with these major focuses:

  • Deepening teachers’ understandings of English grammar, theoretically and applied

  • Grammar in the classroom: analysing classroom contexts and texts, with the intention to understand and use more effectively as teachers / as students

  1. The determinants of text grammar – topic and register

  2. Rethinking genre and text types – visual, oral and print

  3. From simple to more complex text

  4. Comparing the grammar of spoken and written texts

  5. Exploring the concept of ‘correct’ English

  6. Unpacking and building ‘rich’ text examples

The above are explored meaningfully using actual classroom examples.

NB: A specific emphasis can also be identified e.g. a focus on written text, or oral text
