Knowing about the English language: “a wrinkle in time”
Exley, Beryl E. & Wilson, Gael (2012) Knowing about the English language: “a wrinkle in time”. Practically Primary, 17(1), pp. 4-8.
Beryl & Gael discuss the ‘new’ metalanguage for knowledge about language presented in the Australian Curriculum English (ACARA, 2010). Their discussion connects to practice by recounting how one teacher scaffolds her students through detailed understandings of noun and adjective groups in reading activities. The stimulus text is the novel ‘A wrinkle in time’ (L’Engle, 1962, reproduced 2007) and the purpose is to build students’ understandings so they can work towards ‘expressing and developing ideas’ in written text (ACARA, 2010).
