Develop Your Grammar and Vocabulary Knowledge for Teaching

Why should you attend?

There has been a surge of interest in the teaching of vocabulary recently and a similar revival of interest in the teaching of grammar since the curriculum revisions of 2015. In the busy life of a teacher it can be difficult to keep your knowledge up-to-date, read the latest research and sift the good advice from the bad. This course will help you to develop your thinking around these key areas, with a bonus helping of practical classroom strategies.

What will the course cover?

  • A look at some of the debates around the teaching of vocabulary and grammar.
  • Robust research on which to ground your pedagogy.
  • Resources to update your subject knowledge.
  • How to apply the research in the classroom – engaging ways to teach vocabulary and grammar.
