OverviewThis value pack contains Language and Learning 6th edition, The Grammar Handbook and two chapters from Teaching Literacies in the Middle Years. Language and Learning 6th edition is Australia's most comprehensive textbook about language acquisition and use. Written specifically for Australian pre-service teachers, the aspects of language explored include: the purposes and uses of language, the linguistic basis of language, language-learning, the influence of new technologies on language and learning, and implications of language knowledge for teaching.The Grammar Handbook is an essential reference for English grammar, punctuation and usage. It is ideal for undergraduate students seeking additional assistance with their grammar. The functional grammar section includes models of text types divided into literary text types and factual text types and grammar is introduced in a logical sequence so that students will understand the meaning of terms. The easy-to-use contents list and page tabs provide a handy reference to support any language activity from word, phrase and sentence level through to text level.Teaching Literacies in the Middle Years addresses a 'hot topic' in education - the teaching of literacy - in relation to the middle years of schooling. It provides the foundations for understanding some of the issues and challenges in working with middle years' students in the current Australian context. All chapters are theoretically grounded in a socio-cultural perspective of literacy. The book demonstrates how teachers might go about teaching literacies in the middle years. It presents ideas, including teaching strategies that are contextualised within the practices of real classrooms and within broader long term goals for literacy learning. It helps pre-service teachers to identify the literacy needs of young people, and to apply their teaching skills to the development of appropriate and effective pedagogies for students from different backgrounds and with different life experiences and expectations.
