Abstract

Are there evidence-based answers to the broad question "What explicit knowledge about language in teachers and/or students appears to enhance literacy development in some way"? Distinguished by its global perspective, its currency, and its comprehensiveness, Beyond the Grammar Wars: -provides an historical overview of the debates around grammar and English/literacy teaching in four settings: the US, England, Scotland and Australia -offers an up-to-date account of what the research is telling (and not telling) us about the effectiveness of certain kinds of grammar-based pedagogies in English/literacy classrooms -takes readers into English/literacy classrooms through a range of examples of language/grammar-based pedagogies which have proven to be successful -metalinguistic issues related to changes in textual practices in a digital and multimodal age, and explores the challenges for educators who are committed to finding a "usable grammar" to contribute to teaching and learning in relation to these practices.
