Friday 14 May – TEACHING GRAMMAR THROUGH WRITING AND FOR WRITING

Presented by Deb Sukarna for Foundation to Year 6 Teachers

If we want to improve our student’s ability to write, then we must understand the importance of teaching Grammar and hence the importance of building our professional knowledge in this area. Participants will be provided with a Grammar Menu –  a developmental planner for the teaching of Grammar. The use of Mentor Texts will help build teacher confidence and provide the context for discovering the patterns of Grammar. A simple framework for planning g a teaching group in Grammar will be worked through.  The seminar will be full of practical examples for teaching Grammar and creating student resources.
