Grading papers is a fact of life, especially in English classrooms, and the paper load is a leading cause of teacher burnout. Fortunately, Carl Jago’s here to help, and in Papers, Papers, Papers, she offers you advice honed from thirty-one years in the English classroom and forty-five thousand papers worth of grading.
The first two chapters of the book address general questions of grammar in ESL theory and classroom practice. These are followed by ideas for the creative teaching of grammar. Included are specific suggestions for teaching most of the common, beginning-level structures, which are listed separately in a grammar index for easy reference.
Robert Jeffcoate provides many practical ideas for developing a repertoire of skills. He illustrates his suggestions with detailed examples of classroom practice and with many quotations from pupils’ own work.
The plan and purpose of this book are to provide educationally sound theories and creative activities in the teaching of English. This third edition retains many of the activities that were included in previous editions but also offers much new material based on the most current research and practice in English education.
