Grammar Day in Townsville

A follow-up day to develop understandings in Grammar for the Australian Curriculum: English will be presented on Saturday 31 October, 2015 at Town High School Theatre J, in Townsville.

This activity will initially revisit and reinforce basic understandings about the approach to grammar underpinning the Language Strand of the Australian Curriculum: English (AC: E) that were addressed in the one-day course at Town High on 28 March. From that base, we'll work on further developing those understandings in working with a range of authentic texts suitable for English classrooms.

Planning will endeavour to ensure that:

(a) the day will be worthwhile for those who attended the session in March; and

(b) those who couldn't make it in March will not be lost.
