Strand 09ii: Language, Literacy, Reading and Grammar ROOM 112 | 10:00 to 10:45

Dr Marcello Giovanelli, Senior Lecturer in English Language and Literature, Aston University


This session will outline some of the reasons why grammar teaching is a fundamental part of English teaching not as a pedagogy of prescription but rather as a way of developing students’ knowledge about language in the broadest sense. Drawing on issues and topics related to both primary and secondary contexts, the session will look at some of the barriers teachers face and will suggest ways in which these might be overcome.
