Grammar: Subject Knowledge and Pedagogical Principles
Join Dr Marcello Giovanelli from Aston University for this session on grammar. This session has two aims. The first is to provide an overview of key grammatical concepts (word classes, phrases, clauses and discourse) in order to develop subject knowledge in grammar. The second is to provide an overview of some pedagogical principles for teaching grammar, namely by embedding and contextualising grammar into the exploration of authentic texts in order to understand how grammar works to construct meaning.
