Integrated Skills: Grammar NOT in Isolation

Join us as we share strategies to teach grammar from an integrated skills approach. Use these activities in your classroom right away to incorporate grammar throughout a lesson. We will focus on grammar at every stage, from introducing the topic to direct vocabulary and grammar instruction as it relates to text work, academic skills, and writing tasks. From an integrated skills approach, grammar can be practiced through reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
