    Grammar for Writing is a way of teaching writing designed to help pupils to understand how linguistic structures convey meaning, rather than teaching grammatical rules in the abstract. The teaching of the grammar is therefore explicit, but embedded in the context of teaching about writing genres (e.g. narrative and persuasive writing). The aim is to improve pupils’ “metalinguistic awareness” – their understanding of the language choices they make when they write. This study builds on a previous evaluation of Grammar for Writing funded by the EEF.
