Agenda Communication - Workshops - Teach Me Grammar

Teach Me Grammar!

In the second half of 2011, twelve intrepid language and literacy teachers joined the Teach Me Grammar Project - an action learning project investigating the ins and outs of teaching grammar to various adult learner groups (CaLD, native speakers, ATSI, Deaf).  The aim was to identify the value of teaching grammar and of finding the most productive and effective ways of doing so. The participants attended ten, four-hour PD sessions to learn the grammar themselves (or 'plug the gaps' in their grammar knowledge) and to consider and learn about a variety of techniques for teaching it to their own learners.  Between the sessions, the participants were  expected to teach at least some of what they had learned to their own students, and then reflect on the experience through a specially designed blog.  The great success of the project led to a new, slightly extended program and a second, more intensive program being organised for 2012. A third program was also started in Albany which will continue into 2013. Another Perth-based program will also run in 2013 starting in March.  This program has already been filled, but if you are interested in participating in a future program (or simply finding out a little more about it) contact Geoff Pearson on 9330 8989.


The program covers:

Grammar Lessons on:

Nouns


Action verbs


Static verbs


Adjectives


Adverbs


Pronouns


Prepositions


Determiners


Conjunctions


5 basic active sentence patterns with variations


7 key tenses


 

These Teaching skills:

Using video and real-life texts


Combining and decombining sentneces


Physicalising grammar


Integrating grammar teaching into communicative tasks


Noticing, hunting and imitating

Questions considered were:

What's the value of teaching grammar, if any?


Is it the same for different learner groups?


What should be taught when, and in what order?


Should we abandon traditional terminology in favour of more user-friendly language?

As well as other Perth-based programs being run in 2013, 2014 and 2015, a program was run in Geraldton from July 2013 to June 2014.  Three further programs ran in 2015/16, and two more in 2016. The next program will start in February 2017, with a second expected to start in July 2017.
