Course Description

This course is an interactive workshop, delivered online over half a day, with plenty of time for discussion and questions.

You'll explore various aspects of English grammar in relation to a range of literary and non-literary texts, and explore ways to integrate this into your own teaching.

You’ll see how knowledge about grammar can be used as a tool to analyse texts. This approach, using clear criteria and a consistent toolset, provides you with the means to analyse a wide range of texts in the classroom. 

This course is completely tailored to the 2014 UK National Curriculum, so you can be confident that you'll learn about English grammar as specified in the curriculum. 

The course aims to help you:

  • understand methods, approaches and principles for teaching grammar in context;
  • be able to apply grammatical knowledge in analysing a range of literary and non-literary texts;
  • understand how grammar works as a meaning-making resource;
  • feel confident in the methods used to analyse English grammar, and use that confidence to enthuse your students in the classroom

Who this course is for

This course is designed for primary and secondary school teachers who wish to explore ideas for applying and integrating grammar and knowledge about language into their teaching. This course presupposes that you have some basic grammatical knowledge, perhaps as a result of participating on our other course, English Grammar for Teachers (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/lifelearning/courses/english-grammar-for-teachers). Before taking Teaching English Grammar in Context we recommend that you explore the content and glossary on www.englicious.org (free sign-up).

The English Grammar for Teachers course is designed to build confidence in subject knowledge. Teaching English Grammar in Context is designed to apply that subject knowledge. If you feel you have very little or no explicit knowledge of English grammar, we recommend that you take the English Grammar for Teachers course first.
