Teaching Grammar Creatively is a practical new resource book that offers a variety of lessons and activities for everyday use in English language classes. It aims to stimulate students' imagination, humour and creativity and increase the effectiveness of grammar practice. The book offers more than 50 complete lessons covering a wide range of grammar structures, learner levels, and age groups. Each lesson is divided into two main sections: Language Awareness Activities and Creative Grammar Practice. The Language Awareness Activities are designed to introduce and provide initial practice of items that may still be unfamiliar to students. The Creative Grammar Practice section provides ideas for a deeper and more personalised familiarisation with these items, always with an element of individual creativity. Each lesson ends with the creation of a learner text - a permanent and original record of the grammar, in the form of a story or a poem for example.

If you want to start an argument in a teachers' lounge, bring up the topic of how best to teach grammar. There is a wide spectrum of opinion. Traditionalists claim that we must explicitly teach grammar. Students drill the basics and diagram sentences. Sometimes their study and drills take the place of writing, but these teachers claim that good writing demands good grammar. At the opposite end of the spectrum are teachers who claim that the best way to learn grammar is to write, thereby being forced to use grammar in writing and editing. They reason that students will learn grammar in the context of actually using it, without all the drills and worksheets. They trust the writing process to instill an appreciation for grammar, instead of actually teaching it. Teachers on the write-to-learn-grammar side claim that students who are only taught grammar rules might pass tests, but since they didn't learn in the context of writing, they typically don't apply the rules when they write. Grammar traditionalists say students in writing classes never learn grammar at all, because it is not explicitly taught. In Tools, Not Rules, authors Tommy Thomason and Geoff Ward take the middle-ground position that grammar should be taught as part of the writing process. Tommy Thomason is a veteran journalist and university journalism professor at TCU. Geoff Ward is a well-known Australian professor and associate dean from James Cook University in Townsville. Both have written several books and work extensively with American teachers. Publisher's website: http: //www.eloquentbooks.com/ ToolsNotRules-TeachingGrammarInTheWritingClassroom.htm

Understanding and Teaching Grammar in the Primary Classroom is a practical guide for trainee and practising teachers, with language, and the way we use it to think and communicate, at its heart. Built on a foundation of how powerful, beautiful and thought-provoking language is, this book uses our intuitions about words and language to form a picture of how grammar works, and how even very young children are masters of its patterns. Each chapter builds from fundamental concepts up to the fine details, providing an introduction to developing grammatical subject knowledge, alongside explanations of key ideas and vocabulary, including: • Generality – a look at the general structures of sentences that allow us to learn a language at all • Specifics – a look at the words and modifications that allow us to use this universal tool to pinpoint the specifics of our thoughts and the world around us • Relationships – looking at how sentences behave in relation to one another, and how they can be merged in such a way that we can show cause and effect in the world • Humans – focusing on some of the details and idiosyncrasies we are able to give our language • Language games – examples of language typical of children, and methods to pull this apart and understand how it works. At its core is the idea that as our language grows, so our understanding grows; grammar is not the study of what to say and how to say it, but of what it is possible to think, feel and express in words. Illustrated throughout with practical lesson ideas, helpful tips and easy-to-use classroom strategies, Understanding and Teaching Grammar in the Primary Classroom is a must-read guide for all trainee and practising primary teachers.

Recent SLA research recognizes the necessity of attention to grammar and demonstrates that form-focused instruction is especially effective when it is incorporated into a meaningful communicative context. Designed specifically for second-language teachers, this text identifies and explores the various options for integrating a focus on grammar and a focus on communication in classroom contexts and offers concrete examples of teaching activities for each option. Each chapter includes a description of the option, its theoretical and empirical background, examples of activities illustrating in a non-technical manner how it can be implemented in the classroom, questions for reflection, and a list of useful resources that teachers can consult for further information.

This MA thesis tries to answer the questions why and how should a teacher use songs to teach. Songs have always been part of the everyday life of students, probably even before they start school. However, teachers often feel that using songs in a classroom is a waste of time and feel that it would not contribute to the learning process. In the thesis, I state various reasons why using songs is beneficial for teaching. The teacher can use songs for almost every subject, but this thesis focuses on using songs in an EFL classroom, particularly for teaching English grammar. Songs are used to introduce various topics or for starting a discussion. Songs are also very useful when it comes to teaching grammar. Students usually hate learning grammar, especially grammatical rules. However, research has shown that students are more motivated and remember the rules better when the teacher uses songs. Furthermore, if the teacher uses songs the students know and listen to outside the classroom, he or she even increases motivation and retention. Contemporary songs are best for secondary school students and elementary school students from the sixth grade to the ninth grade, while made-for-EFL songs and jazz chants are best for younger learners. In the empirical part of the thesis, I list some pre-, while- and post-listening activities a teacher can use with songs. I also provide lists of contemporary songs that contain grammar that is taught to second year students of secondary school in reference to Module 2 of the Enterprise Intermediate coursebook. Some of them roughly also refer to the topics of Module 2. I also present three examples of lessons with various activities in which a teacher uses songs as an example of how to incorporate songs in teaching English grammar.
