[New: an email list!]
Welcome to Teaching Grammar, maintained by Geoff Dean and Dick Hudson. We hope to fill it up with good stuff about:
- why grammar is worth teaching in UK schools, both in English lessons and in foreign-language lessons.
- what grammar can and should be taught.
- how it can be taught successfully.
- how and why it is taught in other countries and at other times in this country.
- how to boost your own knowledge of grammatical ideas and terminology.
The material is divided into tabs as follows:
- About: this page
- Who? – a list of all the authors who are listed in the other pages
- Context: the historical, geographical and governmental context of grammar teaching
- Why? – why teach grammar?
- How? – what are the best ways to teach it effectively?
- What? – what grammar to teach?
- Self-help – how to improve your own grammatical knowledge
- Events – conferences or lectures about grammar teaching
- Email list about teaching grammar
We’d also like to advertise the LAGB grammar glossary for schools
