PETAA: Grammar and Teaching – A Twelve Week Program *Online*
August 17 @ 4:00 pm - November 23 @ 6:00 pm$350 – $690
Presented by Joanne Rossbridge and Kathy Rushton in live interactive Zoom sessions!
As a result of the implementation of the national curriculum and the NAPLAN test, many teachers have recognised the need to learn more about the grammatical features of texts. Familiarity with grammar is essential when using language for a range of purposes and supports students to develop reading and writing in all curriculum areas.
In this online course, learners will:
-Explore those features of grammar necessary for students to master by the end of the middle years of schooling;
-Develop understandings of the grammatical concepts outlined in the syllabus documents and in the writing component of NAPLAN;
-Define a pedagogy which includes the teaching of grammar in meaningful contexts relating to the subject matter of the curriculum.
This is a twelve week course suitable for teachers of students K–10. It will be presented in 12 live interactive Zoom sessions on Mondays from 4.30–6.30 pm on the following dates (add them to your calendar when you register):
-Term 3: Weeks 5–10 17, 24, 31 August and 7, 14, 21 September
