The Grammar for Writing Pedagogy
Professor Debra Myhill directs an educational research team at the University of Exeter. As well as being Associate Dean of Research, Debra also leads on the Secondary English PGCE course at the University and is a former English teacher.
Debra and her team published the findings of a three-year study into the effectiveness of contextualised grammar teaching – a pedagogy developed at the University of Exeter and now called Grammar for Writing, which has been proven to almost double the rate of writing progress.
