Teaching grammar, punctuation and spelling in primary schools

Teaching grammar, punctuation and spelling in primary schools

Waugh, David (David G.), author

Trainee and beginning teachers often find the teaching of grammar, punctuation and spelling especially challenging as they are not confident in their own knowledge. This popular text explores and provides the subject knowledge you will need to teach grammar, punctuation and spelling and gives guidance on how to teach it. The text is really accessible and includes lots of examples and teaching ideas, enabling you to approach teaching with ease. Detailed examples of effective lessons show you how to engage children's interest in some of the more formal aspects of writing and throughout, activities and practical examples demonstrate how you can translate this learning into the classroom. This third edition has been updated to include more examples of children's work. A new chapter is added on 'Teaching grammar across the curriculum' to support an integrated approach to the teaching of grammar
