S2 40.0 Noticing and Using Grammar

Looking for some new ideas for how to engage students in their grammar study? Beth has found success by getting students to notice grammar instead of only presenting it to them. She highlights several examples of getting students to learn from their own curiosity.


A board member of Educators Worldwide, Beth brings experience from teaching in several countries. In this episode, she shares the process of moving students from reading to noticing to discussing and finally writing. Beth emphasizes how students often learn grammar better when they discover some of the rules themselves. 

Learn more about:

  • Use biographies for understanding the past tense.
  • Encourage students to read more critically
  • Use drama to engage students with stories.
  • Show grammar structures through the example of argument essays.
