Online Grammar course for teachers: Free and Non
This course was developed in order to support teachers in both learning about grammar themselves and learning about teaching it. While developed initially for the NSW context, there are clear links to the Australian Curriculum and to wider English language-learning contexts. Links to other sites give teachers an opportunity to brush up on identifying simple language features, and well as more complex aspects. Download the brochure and directions for registering. The course is accredited with the NSW Institute of teachers.
