?Something needs to be done about grammar.” Katz and Blyth have written this book with the hope of changing the way French instructors teach and conceive of grammar. Intended to help teachers and teacher trainers develop an understanding of French discourse that is grounded in recent theoretical and sociolinguistic research, this book is devoted to informing teachers-in-training, as well as experienced teachers, about cutting-edge methods for teaching grammar. It also describes the grammatical features of the French language in its social context. At the same time, it provides suggestions for applying such abstract knowledge in practical pedagogical ways, for example, how to structure grammatical explanations, devise classroom activities, and take advantage of resources that give students greater exposure to French as it is truly used in various discourse environments.

This book offers a whole school approach to the teaching of grammar and punctuation that is fully matched to the demands of the English grammar and punctuation test and the new curriculum. With the shift towards elegant, well-constructed sentences, it offers the busy teacher three simple steps to motivate and engage children, through: • explicit teaching and modelling; • over forty practical games and activities; • application and improvement within editing and proof reading. This book draws on recent research but also is based on many years of classroom practice and a number of case studies. Practical examples develop teachers' understanding of grammatical terms and progression and show how it is possible to have a significant impact on vocabulary, sentence structure and children's writing in general. A balance is found where skills are explicitly taught but within the context of an exciting and interesting curriculum.

Each chapter includes a description of the option, its theoretical and empirical background, examples of activities illustrating in a non-technical manner how it can be implemented in the classroom, questions for reflection, and a list of useful resources that teachers can consult for further information.

"This thesis recommends ways of teaching both high school and college level learners from ages 16-90 in Saudi Arabia. The goal is to help teachers understand how they can teach grammar through the use of various media-both in the classroom and for homework. It justifies and models how media can help learners understand grammar rules while learning life lessons and clarifying values (Reeves, 2011) as stated by UNESCO. This is a qualitative case study of two English teachers--one Egyptian and on South African teaching in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA)-and two students-one English major studying English in KSA and one biology major studying in the United States. Subjects were asked about the use of media to teach grammar and were given a media lesson to respond to in an interview or by email. Elements of critical ethnography and constructivist grounded theory are incorporated in a mixed methods approach. Sample lessons are included to demonstrate teaching grammar through media to provide a meaningful, whole language approach to engage language learners and increase motivation to learn English. Materials are offered to supplement the traditional teacher-centered, textbook-based approaches currently used in KSA. The researcher also reflects on his own language learning in KSA-middle school through university as an English major-and in the United States as a graduate student in English"--Leaf iv.
