Grammar Games: A Case for Instructionist Game Models to Enhance Grammar Awareness and Accuracy
Raftery, Brian; Santos, Jennifer
Journal of Instructional Research, v4 p142-147 2015
Based on our own experiences teaching grammar in developmental writing classes and classes not dedicated to writing instruction, along with a history of scholarship that indicates a need for grammar pedagogies (e.g., Dougherty, 2012), instructor-designed grammar games can likely help facilitate learning about these mechanics of writing while easing the frustrations of grammar instruction. Ultimately, the versatility of grammar games in assessing student learning (e.g., launch or review) makes them valuable tools for educators in any field that requires writing.
