The Vocabulary-Grammar Continuum: A third approach to activity design

Screenshot_AEISWe have recently published an article for the TESOL AEIS newsletter on the “vocabulary-grammar continuum,” presenting how vocabulary, word forms, and grammar may be taught together rather than separately.  We also look at how teachers might handle high-frequency word lists by categorizing words into content, grammar, and “shadow” words.  The article is based on our presentation at the 2014 International TESOL Conference in Portland, Oregon.
