What if, rather than stand in front of them and give them the same tired old lecture about the comma, we took it outside and used something in which they have substantial interest as the conduit to learning? In Literacy through Football Skills acclaimed educator, Phil Beadle, attempts to answer that ‘What if?’ This book contains an illustrated scheme of work that, if followed, will teach your students some quite complex grammatical ideas, through just taking them outside and doing some football training. All these activities have been fully trialled by Phil with a group of students and are appropriate across key stages 2, 3 and 4.
