ATESOL Grammar Workshop

This annual workshop is a hands on session that will provide teachers of EAL/D learners with practical strategies for teaching grammar in context in the mainstream primary classroom.

Date August 27, 2016 - August 27, 2016
Time 9:30am - 12:00pm

Presenters will demonstrate a range of ways that grammar can be taught using visuals and how students from K-6 can benefit from these strategies. The workshop will focus on using visuals to build language and speaking and listening skills linked to specific grammatical features such as compound and complex sentences.

Rana Straker’s presentation will focus on developing grammatical knowledge and understanding of students K-6 through talking and listening strategies linked to visual images. Janet Freeman’s presentation will focus on teaching students to write narratives in Stage 3 through the use of visuals and encouraging students to make and discuss specific language choices. Bess Wassman will present a framework for teaching writing K-6 that explicitly incorporates visuals and speaking and listening skills to build student knowledge and expertise of targeted grammar.

Please join us for this excellent professional learning session!
