About the Presenter
Amanda Lanier, MAFLT Program Director at Michigan State University
As more and more world language teachers have embraced comprehension-based and acquisition-driven approaches, grammar instruction has become a bigger battleground. It’s time to get past the discord and re-discover grammar. This session will explore why and how grammar belongs in your curriculum and ways of incorporating it that empower learners to communicate more effectively.
