This third edition of Grammar Survival brings the content fully up-to-date with the new National Curriculum and GCSEs, making it current and relevant for all secondary school English teachers.

Grammar Survival for Secondary Teachers combines knowledge about grammar with pedagogical approaches. Each left-hand page sets out the knowledge teachers need about different aspects of grammar, incorporating research evidence where appropriate, and each right-hand page offers practical ideas and methods for teaching it, often in the context of authentic texts to show grammar in action.

This book aims to help pupils become more confident readers and writers, able to make conscious and informed choices about the use of grammar, vocabulary and punctuation in their own work. Chapters cover the following:

  • Vocabulary
  • Extending knowledge about grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Levels of formality
  • Grammar for reading and writing
  • Writing about language use
  • Full glossary and further reading recommendations

Completely underpinned by the National Curriculum Programmes of Study for Key Stages 3 and 4, this book supports all secondary school English teachers, regardless of their chosen GCSE specification, and is essential reading for trainee, newly qualified and experienced teachers alike.
