Description:
The purpose of Grammar for Teachers is to encourage
readers to develop a solid understanding of the use and function of
grammatical structures in American English. It approaches grammar from
a descriptive rather than a prescriptive approach; however, throughout Grammar for Teachers differences between formal and informal language, and spoken and written English are discussed. Grammar for Teachers avoids jargon or excessive use of technical terminology and reviews essential grammar structures clearly and concisely.
The text encourages users to tap into their own, often
subconscious, knowledge of the grammar of English and to make it a
conscious knowledge they can apply to their own varied teaching
settings. Grammar for Teachers emphasizes looking at grammar
from the perspective of learners of English, an approach that allows
teachers to better appreciate the language difficulties learners of
English face in ESL or mainstream classrooms. Discussions of areas of
difficulties for learners of English are included throughout the text.
Grammar for Teachers makes the study of grammar
interesting and relevant by presenting grammar in context and by using
authentic material from a wide variety of sources, including magazines,
newspapers, children's books, bestsellers, works of literature, and
academic prose.
In each chapter, the numerous Discovery Activities engage users
in exploring the different elements of grammar and in considering how
these elements work together to form meaningful units. The subsequent
discussion of each Discovery Activity allows users to explore specific
elements of grammar on their own.
At the end of each chapter, additional Practice Activities ask
users to apply the grammar concepts presented in each chapter. Included
in the Practice Activities are samples of relevant learner errors and
error analysis exercises.
