Description

Essential Grammar and Punctuation for Teachers of Secondary English

 

This two-session workshop offers a practical overview of the grammatical aspects of the English language in written and spoken contexts as required in secondary school English courses. The aim of the workshop is to promote linguistic knowledge amongst teachers and their students as well as to provide strategies for the contextual application of such knowledge. Participants will review the nuts and bolts of morphology (session one), syntax and punctuation (session two) through practical strategies that can be directly applied to the classroom in a relevant, contextualised manner. Editing strategies will be demonstrated to enhance contextualised learning of essential linguistics. This is an active, practical workshop with contemporary examples and bloopers galore!

Laura Deriu is an experienced teacher of English at secondary level and facilitator of professional development for teachers of English. They have facilitated PD in curriculum, faculty change and professional communication. Additionally, they have co-authored/edited several senior English resource texts for Thomson Learning, Cengage Learning Jacaranda, A+ Guides, Cambridge University Press and VATE.

They recently completed a Masters in Applied Linguistics (Monash). Laura currently works as an English tutor, writer/editor and freelance academic.
