— [http://goo.gl/QZRJ2d] Inductive (noticing new features of the language) and deductive approaches to grammar_______________________There's a debate whether deductive or inductive teaching yields better outcomes for second language acquisition.

:: RT: Exploring ▶ http://goo.gl/E4WFJv ◀ current understandings about how to teach grammar to younger second language learners. Implicity vs Explicity Instruction; Dennis Murphy Odo (Professor / Hanyang University) ↠ #Education #Pedagogy #Grammar #Writing #Linguistics #ContextualUnderstanding

Discussing three understandings of what grammar is (product, process, and skill) and why second language teachers should teach it. Dennis M. Odo presents an argument for why inductive approaches to grammar instruction and presenting grammar in context are the most effective instructional approaches for younger EFL learners. From there, Dennis M. Odo will explore what inductive and contextualized approaches to grammar instruction actually looks like in the classroom through presentation of several sample instructional activities. Lastly, Dennis M. Odo will touch upon how learner feedback and error correction can be handled within this approach.

Dr. Dennis Murphy Odo received his Ph.D. in Language and Literacy Education with a concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from UBC (Vancouver, Canada) in 2012. He also holds an M.A. in Applied Linguistics (Leicester, UK) and an M.S. Ed in Childhood Education (D’ Youville, USA). He has previously served as an in-service public school TESOL methods teacher trainer for the Gyeonggi provincial office of education. He recently served as a tenure-track Assistant Professor of ESOL/ Reading education at Georgia State University in Atlanta, USA where he taught courses in first and second language reading. He is currently a professor of TESOL at Hanyang University in Seoul teaching TESOL certificate courses in second language literacy and pedagogical grammar. His main research interests are in second language reading and teacher assessment competence.

Question: — With particular reference to the teaching of grammar, explain the main differences between an inductive and a deductive approach. To what extent do you think it is possible to combine the two approaches? Choose one particular grammar point and describe how you would teach the item. Explain why you have decided to teach the item in this way.
