Uncovering Grammar: How to Help Grammar Emerge

Product Enquiry

In Uncovering Grammar Scott Thornbury examines why it is more useful to think about how we can ‘uncover’ the working of grammar systems with our students rather than the traditional assumption that we need to ‘cover’ points in a set grammar syllabus.

It provides a wide range of practical ideas so that you can immediately put the ideas to work in your classroom.

Uncovering Grammar will help you to:
• understand how grammar is learnt
• identify the role grammar plays in ‘perfecting language’
• make grammar a dynamic component of your teaching
