This course provides an opportunity for pre-service and in-service ESL/EFL teachers to learn about current insights and strategies in the teaching of grammar from the disciplines of sociolinguistics, composition, and TESOL. The class will examine attitudes and beliefs about grammar in the society at large, as well as investigating trends and research in the teaching of grammar to better serve not only English Language Learners, but all students. TS 780 studies grammar in oral as well as written language discourse, with emphasis on language use.
