It helps you get to grips with your knowledge of grammar for the national curriculum - including the spelling, punctuation and grammar test - as well as providing you with some tried and tested ways to teach grammar.

Uniquely, the book takes a systematic step-by-step approach to explain the grammatical terminology specified in the national curriculum. It also illustrates how you might develop children's grammatical knowledge by offering a range of practical activities which are rich, meaningful and support children's development as confident and curious language investigators. Key features include: * Easy-to-read chapters which systematically focus on grammatical subject knowledge at word, phrase and clause level * Guidance in each chapter addressing typical grammar problems or misconceptions, and some grammar jokes * Inspiring suggestions for teaching activities to help children develop grammatical knowledge in meaningful learning contexts * Reference to authentic children's books to illuminate the grammatical explanations and suggested teaching activities * Ideas on how high quality talk about grammar and texts can be fostered in the classroom "This book gives an excellent research evidence based approach that puts the teaching of grammar firmly onto a book rich curriculum that not only enhances subject knowledge but also awakens an interest in the grammar." Jo Tregenza, Senior Teaching Fellow and head of initial teacher training at The University of Sussex, UK "Myhill et al manage to tackle some of the trickiest aspects of grammar with clarity and a lightness of touch that ensures the reader never feels they have been taken too far into the depths of linguistics. Every primary teacher needs a copy in their bag!" Rebecca Cosgrave: Primary English Adviser Babcock LDP "This is extremely practical, explaining grammatical concepts in clear and helpful terms, and offering a range of engaging teaching activities for the classroom."

This innovative grammar text is an ideal resource for writers, language students, and current and future classroom teachers who need an accessible "refresher" in a step-by-step guide to essential grammar. Rather than becoming mired in overly detailed linguistic definitions, Nancy Sullivan helps writers and students understand and apply grammatical concepts and develop the skills they need to enhance their own writing. Along with engaging discussions of both contemporary and traditional terminology, Sullivan's text provides clear explanations of the basics of English grammar and a highly practical, hands-on approach to mastering the use of language. Complementing the focus on constructing excellent sentences, every example and exercise set is contextually grounded in language themes. Teachers, students, and writers will appreciate the streamlined, easy-to-understand coverage of essential grammar, as well as the affordable price. This is an ideal textbook for future teachers enrolled in an upper-level grammar course yet is also suitable for any writing course across disciplines where grammatical precision is important. Instructor materials accompanying the text provide teachers with activities designed for face-to-face, hybrid, and online instruction to enliven these basic grammar lessons as well as writing activities to integrate these concepts into students' own writing.
