Are you afraid of worksheets?  Are you concerned that we might ask you to diagram a sentence?  Don't worry - this session isn't your same, old, boring set of grammar exercises.  Instead, we'll focus on ways for provoking grammar errors in student writing that can be addressed in subsequent instruction.  When taught with precision, grammar instruction facilitates students' understanding of language. This Web seminar is part of an ongoing series on teaching English language learners that highlights specific research-based strategies you can put into practice tomorrow. In this hour, you will learn: 

  • Why explicit grammar instruction is necessary
  • Ways to integrate grammar instruction into daily lessons
  • How to support the link between comprehension and grammar
  • How to make grammar instruction meaningful for students
Note: Due to the online nature of this product, purchases are nonrefundable.
