    English Grammar and Teaching Strategies aims to demystify grammar and equip any teacher to teach it in the classroom.

    Carefully set out for ease of reference, this book covers every aspect of grammar, from nouns, adjectives and verbs to punctuation and prepositions. Each grammatical term is clearly defined and accompanied by varieties of usage and teaching strategies, which can be easily extended according to the age and key stage of the pupil. These strategies are for both spoken and written language and can be used for a whole class, small groups, with those with special educational needs and with EAL learners.

    Featuring a brand new preface by Jo Shackleton, this Routledge Classic Edition is an indispensable resource for all teachers in both primary and secondary schools.
