As teachers, we often talk about 'covering' grammar points. Uncovering Grammar challenges the traditional view of grammar as a thing to be learned, suggesting it is more like a process that emerges. It re-examines traditional approaches to teaching grammar and shows how to create the right conditions for students to uncover grammar.
- The book uses extracts from exchanges in real classrooms, authentic texts and language teaching tasks, and contains a wide range of practical ideas, activities and photocopiable resources so teachers can easily put theory into practice in their classrooms.
- It explains how grammar functions in language and how grammatical systems emerge, with task sheets to help teachers and students understand the processes of grammar in language acquisition.
