The Role of Grammar in a Secondary School English Curriculum.
Elley, W. B.; And Others
New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, v10 n1 pp26-42 May 1975
The purpose of this study was to carry out a longitudinal study of the direct effects of traditional and transformational English grammar on children's writing skills. The investigation was conducted entirely in one large, coeducational high school on the outskirts of Auckland, Australia, beginning with the third form and ending with the sixth form. Three-hundred eighty students participated. The results presented show that the effects of such grammar study are negligible in terms of improving writing skills. (RB)
