   schema:description "The topics of 'standard English and language study' form a recurring strand in the revised (1995) version of the English National Curriculum, presenting primary teachers, in particular, with new challenges. At the same time, there is increasing international interest in what children know about language and how that knowledge can he developed without returning to unsatisfactory, decontextualized grammar exercises. This book addresses a number of issues related to these themes. It places current curriculum requirements in a historical context and reviews evidence for how children's knowledge about language develops during the primary school years. Above all, it presents a wide range of practical suggestions for using many different kinds of texts, both spoken and written, as a basis for teaching children about real language."@en ;
