Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
This book aims at investigating whether teaching literature and teaching grammar can be integrated in second language teaching. In the literature review part of the work the first aim is to provide a summary of the studies that have dealt with the questions of why literature and grammar should be taught in the language classroom and especially how teachers should teach them. Since there is hardly any literature on how these two areas can be integrated, the aim is to find those points where the two language teaching areas can be combined. In the second part of the book four activities are introduced to show possible ways how theory can be put into practice in the language classroom. They are also implemented and, as the results show, they are regarded by the students as effective and motivating ways of teaching grammar through literature. The work should help shed some light on this new and exciting teaching area, and should be specially useful to teachers of English who may consider utilizing teaching grammar for teaching literature.
