The Art of Great Grammar and Punctuation program for Year 8 is aligned to the language conventions and literacy strands of the Australian Curriculum. It is customised to equip all students with the skills they need to write with confidence and fluency, and to make the process of writing much faster and easier. Rather than just providing students with a list of rules to follow, this program focuses on applied grammar and punctuation; we provide extensive models and ensure that students get plenty of practice and feedback to consolidate their skills. The Art of Great Grammar and Punctuation program gives students control of their writing and confidence that they will impress their readers.
- Students gain a deeper understanding of how punctuation is used to construct texts for different audiences and purposes. They learn how to apply punctuation conventions in a range of formal and informal texts, including the presentation of dialogue.
Sentences and Clause Level Grammar
- Students analyse the way that authors control and use a variety of clause structures and the effect of these choices.
Word Level Grammar
- Students understand the effect of nominalisation in the writing of informative and persuasive texts.
- Students learn how to apply their pre-existing knowledge to spell accurately and tackle new words.
- Students apply the rules to their work and assess the impact of improved punctuation and grammar skills on the readability and effect of their writing.
