ALL Yorkshire Session 4 – Grammar Prof. Emma Marsden Professor of Applied Linguistics, University of York; Director of NCELP
February 12 @ 17:30 - 19:00
This session focuses on one of the core components of language competence and a driver of the NCELP Key Stage 3 Schemes of Work: grammar! We will address the ‘why’, ‘what’, ‘when’, and ‘how’ questions about grammar teaching. Participants will leave the session with an understanding of our approach to selecting, sequencing, and teaching grammar. Our principles draw on research about how learners attend to and process the input they hear and read, how they retain information, and the role of practice.
