GRAMMAR IN THE CLASSROOM: NOT WHETHER, BUT HOW

One-day Symposium hosted by the Centre for Research in Writing and the Survey of English Usage at UCL

A Graduate School of Education research event
Date10 February 2017
Time9:00 to 16:00
PlaceBaring Court 202

Exeter's Centre for Research in Writing is delighted to host a special one-day symposium with the Survey of English Usage at University College London. Taking place at a time of increasing emphasis on the explicit teaching of grammar within the National Curriculum, the symposium will provide a timely discussion of the current curricular conception of grammar, as well as consider the possible senses in which grammar is most relevant to the English classroom. It will also provide an invaluable opportunity to engage with the cutting-edge work of both centres into the role of grammar teaching and the nature of grammatical development. The day itself will be divided into two parts, with the afternoon session devoted to the featured speakers, and the morning session to related postgraduate research currently being undertaken at both Exeter and Lancaster University.
