ETC Publishes flow chart for grammar materials

06-Jan-2018

Over the past year, we have seen an overwhelming request from teachers on the subject of grammar, and how each of our grammar materials connects and interrelates, so that children are able to get the benefit of a full continuum.


Today, we are releasing a flow chart that allows teachers to understand how our grammar materials work together to build a child's understanding of the english language. The chart is fully interactive so that teachers or guides, and support staff may not only make better use of our materials, but also find the right tools to implement.
