A Constructivist Approach to Grammar: Teaching Teachers To Teach Aspect.
Blyth, Carl
Modern Language Journal, v81 n1 p50-66 Spr 1997
Demonstrates how a constructivist approach to teacher education helps inexperienced teachers understand learning and teaching of aspect, a core grammatical concept. By consciously experiencing the process of narration, apprentice teachers construct deeper awareness of form/meaning aspectual correlations of the target language. More generally, argues that a constructivist approach to teacher education facilitates development of an innovative grammar pedagogy. (Author/MSE)
