In this webinar, Nancy Hennessy, Nancy Eberhardt and Sheryl Ferlito unpack syntax instruction. This webinar provides a high-level overview of best practices for syntax instruction. Hennessy and Eberhardt highlight a “function-first” approach that is aligned with the Ontario curriculum – instead of naming and identifying parts of speech, effective syntax instruction involves explicitly teaching students the function of these words in language.
This webinar supports the teaching and learning of B3 - Language Conventions. The Curriculum emphasizes a function-first approach to teaching syntax, a key element of this webinar.
