Teaching Language in Context & Grammar Matters
Publication Date 4 Dec 2013
OverviewThis value pack contains Teaching Language in Context and Grammar Matters.Teaching Language in Context takes the purposes for which language is used in different content areas as the starting point for teaching literacy. It recognises that students' understandings are constructed in language and that each area of the curriculum uses language in a different way. Success in each subject requires students to acquire the specialised language of the curriculum area; that is, the genres and language features through which the content is expressed. In order to successfully develop students' language for curriculum success, teachers must identify the language demands of the different curriculum areas. This textbook supports pre-service teachers to do this while familiarising them with the different curriculum areas. Grammar Matters introduces pre-service teachers to the foundations of grammar. Designed to develop knowledge gradually and build confidence, each chapter covers key concepts in straightforward yet accessible style, allowing readers to master an aspect of grammar or punctuation before building on this with the next topic.For more information on each of these titles, including the table of contents please see their individual pages:Teaching Language in ContextGrammar Matters
