The Teacher's Guide to Grammar is unique in focusing directly on the
aspects of grammar that teachers need to know. Assuming little or no
formal linguistic education, this concise and accessible book provides
the necessary background knowledge required in the classroom context.
There are detailed chapters on the nuts and bolts of language: words,
morphology, sentences, phrases, verbs, and clauses. Other important
educational issues concerned in the teaching of English are discussed:
the grammatical variation that differentiates standard and non-standard
English; how grammar varies in relation to the purpose and audience of a
text; and the different grammatical characteristics of different
languages. Throughout, illustrations are given using examples from the
real spoken and written language produced by learners.
Here are the essentials every English and literacy teacher needs to know about grammar in one practical and relevant guide.
