Towards a Pedagogy of Grammar Instruction
Richards, Jack C.; Reppen, Randi
RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, v45 n1 p5-25 Apr 2014
Grammar can be viewed both as knowledge and as ability. When viewed as knowledge, the focus is on rules for sentence formation. When viewed as ability, the focus is on how grammar is used as a resource in the creation of spoken and written texts. Twelve principles are proposed as the basis for a pedagogy that focusses on acquiring learning to use grammar in texts. Each principle is illustrated with examples from classroom practice.
