Activities for Teaching Chunks and Exploring Patterns
The book begins by looking at recent developments in corpus linguistics and second language acquisition research and outlines the important role which chunks play in textual cohesion and fluency, as well as in grammar acquisition. It goes on to provide practitioners with over 95 practical classroom suggestions and activities for making grammar teaching more lexical, and for making vocabulary practice more grammatical. Activities range from identifying, highlighting and recording chunks of language to enabling learners to use chunks in their active repertoire.
- Activities include clear rationales and procedures, and many contain variations and follow up suggestions.
- Activities can be used on their own or to supplement and enhance coursebook content.
- A glossary and list of tools and resources provides additional support for the reader.
