Product Description

Product Description

SPaG Book is the perfect companion for teachers of spelling, punctuation, and grammar...and now the National Curriculum and Ofsted consider EVERY teacher to be a teacher of literacy, that means you!

Whether you're a grammar novice who doesn't know his adverbs from his elbow, or an expert English teacher who never splits his infinitives, this book has something for you.

It explains the role SPaG has to play in the primary and secondary curricular, from EYFS to A Level. It explains what the SPaG assessment criteria means in practice. And it shares advice and ideas on what to teach and how to teach it.

SPaG Book is also your one-stop-shop for checking spelling, punctuation, and grammar rules. It answers all those thorny questions about how to spell commonly mis-spelt words, how to use semi-colons, and how to avoid dangling your participles or ending your sentences with prepositions.

This book also has a brief history of the English language which explains why English is such a wonderful (and difficult) language to master.

The SPaG Book also has an appendix with subject spelling lists to help you build a bank of key words to display on your classroom wall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 26 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Does exactly what it says on the tin. This book is informative, entertaining and interesting which it manages to do without being long-winded, boring and sanctimonious.
An easy read with lots of good accessible reference points which can be used in planning and teaching.

A nice, easy to read guide; ideal for anyone who wants to brush up on their skills. I wanted to refresh my memory before I head back to the classroom and this book was exactly what I was looking for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Overly simplified and mostly redundant ideas 3 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a truly awful book. It is about 10 years out of date, and so thin in content as to be almost inconsequential. There is very little sound or practical advice afforded and an abundance of unsupported assertion. Some of the methods suggested to teach literacy are laughable. It looks and feels like the author is trying to cash in on the recent emphasis placed on grammar and punctuation in schools. I am really disappointed.
