Proper use of grammar is essential in any setting. But how complicated does it become for our students, when they are expected to put aside all the rules of their native language in order to understand the patterns of a new one? This course will help you to better understand the differences in the rules of grammar across a variety of languages. Together, we will practice grammatical rules and will create a variety of activities which you will use with your students. You will be asked to turn in assignments which include lesson plans, power point presentations and reflective essays. If you are an educator of grades K-12 in the areas of Foreign Language or ESL this course will help you to better understand and incorporate different ways to teach grammar in your classroom. CCSS and NYS Standards, student’s assessments, goals and outcomes will be addressed.
