The focus of Conversations About Texts is on teaching grammar in the context of imaginative, informative and persuasive texts in primary school and the middle years. We will explore the teaching of texts as the context in which grammar is taught to support meaning. Knowledge about grammar is only useful if students use it to read and write, and recognise how authors, including themselves, can use language to make meaning.
The presenters have worked as TESOL teachers and consultants in classrooms and recognise a growing need in the teaching of grammar to support implementation. At the same time, they are aware that many participants will review their own grammatical knowledge or address grammar for the first time.
