This taster unit 'Evolving Language' from the section on Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation in KS3 Language Laboratory takes an investigative approach to finding out about language change. In completing the unit, pupils will learn about and reflect on the nature of language itself, the development of paragraphing, the purpose of punctuation, the use of different word classes and the part played by experimentation in creating meaning.
EMC KS3 Language Laboratory is a pupil book with nine units of work for Years 7-9 organised around three key areas of the language curriculum: Literature and Language; Standard English; Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation. Each unit develops knowledge about language and how it works, encouraging exploration, reflection and metacognition. This is a much-needed intervention in the KS3 curriculum, ensuring a prominent place for rigorous language study that challenges pupils to be active, critical and creative in their own reading and writing.
