Rating
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 second edition has been updated in line with the new National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2. A new chapter is included to explore the national SPAG tests in primary schools. The tests are explained and advice on how to approach them is included. The text will enable you to teach grammar, punctuation and spelling effectively supporting your class in all their writing, across the primary curriculum.
