This course introduces key grammatical terms and concepts, as well as to techniques and procedures for describing and analyzing texts from a grammatical perspective. It also introduces practical techniques for teaching grammar. The focus of the course will be on the range of methodological options for teaching grammar from a psycholinguistic perspective. This approach identifies a range of options for teaching grammar and discusses each option in terms of its potential for promoting second language acquisition. Students will have the opportunity to evaluate materials for teaching grammar and for planning and evaluating their own materials.
