taught it.

better correct the students as to why they made those mistakes and how to correct them appropriately.

I believe the whole program was useful, it’s very difficult to separate one part from another, students of all ages will benefit from such a program.

Good refresher for Grammar

I enjoyed the course and found it useful. It went through some of the finer points of grammar, which assisted me in consolidating my knowledge. I have long felt that the English teaching subjects that I completed at university as part of my Master of Teaching course did not provide enough time to delve deeply into the aspects of English/English teaching due to the duration of the course. I therefore feel that completing this course has helped me to ‘shore up’ my own knowledge as an educator.

The workshop was designed to up-skill teachers in their understanding and confidence of teaching grammar and
that is exactly what it did

This course was a great course to further understand grammatical features in writing.

I absolutely loved the program and learnt so much from Margaret

The ability to explain grammar to students more confidently due to increased knowledge of how to use grammar in ways that is understandable for primary school students.

The way that the program was structured and scaffolded (from the foundational knowledge required through to
the more advanced learning) was incredibly beneficial for me.

The most useful aspect of this program was the increase in my own personal knowledge of
grammar to improve my writing and my ability to teach it to my students.

This program provided a great professional learning opportunity to learn, engage and gain helpful tips from highly experienced language teachers. I thoroughly enjoyed this PL.

The knowledge gained about grammar, not only improved my understanding of grammar, but will allow me to teach it to my students more confidently.
