EDRE 520 : Language: Grammar and History

Students will examine how the history of the English language applies to its modern usage and grammar, particularly in the development of the parts of speech and sentence syntax. In addition, the class focuses on language issues in the current classroom: non-standard usage, ESL differences, and techniques for teaching grammar. Students will produce a graduate research paper as well as a detailed analysis of representative sentences.
