STUDENT BOOK3

Grammar in the real world

Name:

Class:


Grammar Rules!

Grammar Rules! comprehensively meets the requirements of the Australian Curriculum English. The scope and

sequence outlined on pages 4–5 integrates Language, Literature and Literacy to develop students’ knowledge,

understanding and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking and representing.

Grammar Rules! also supports the New Zealand English Curriculum strands: Listening, Reading and Viewing; and

Speaking, Writing and Presenting. Students will use processes and strategies to develop knowledge, skills and

understandings, related to purposes and audiences, ideas, language features and structure.

Grammar can be defined as the way language is organised to make meaning. Knowledge of the grammatical

features that make language use more effective is vital for all students. They need an understanding of grammar to

be able to make appropriate choices to get their message across in speaking and writing (creating texts); and they

need to know how to analyse the language used by others when they are listening and reading (interpreting texts).

Grammatical knowledge will assist students to become analytical, critical and evaluative language users.

Grammar Rules! shows students how grammatical structures and features function in texts to achieve meaning, from

the contextual level of the whole text down to sentence level and to the level of words and word parts. The series

explains appropriate grammatical structures for particular types of texts, language functions and social purposes. The

second edition of the Grammar Rules! program also incorporates elements of self-assessment. A simple reflection

activity allows students to assess their own progress and provides you with a starting point for discussion.

Student Book 3

Units of work

Student Book 3 contains 35 weekly units of work presented in a conceptually sound scope and sequence. The

intention is for students to work through the units in the sequence in which they are presented. See the

Scope and Sequence Chart on pages 4–5 for more information. There are also regular Revision Units that

can be used for consolidation or assessment purposes.

The sample texts in Student Book 3 are based around the theme of discoveries and inventions. The subject

matter of the sample texts is not tied to any particular content across other curriculum areas. This allows

teachers and students to focus on the way language is structured according to purpose and audience.

Students can then use this knowledge to evaluate, respond to and create texts in other learning areas.

The concepts in the sample texts link well with the Cross-Curriculum Priority of Sustainability, as well the

General Capabilities of Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability, Ethical Understanding

and Intercultural Understanding, as described in the Australian Curriculum.

Icons

Note to teachers and parents

Try it

yourself!

Encourages students to create texts of their own to demonstrate their understanding of the

grammatical concepts taught in the unit. These activities focus on written language; however,

many also provide opportunities for using spoken language to engage with others, make

presentations and develop skills in using ICT.

Rule!

Tip!

Highlights useful grammatical rules and concepts. The rule is always

introduced the first time students need it to complete an activity.

Tells students that a special hint is provided for an activity. It might

be a tip about language functions, or a reminder to look at a rule

in a previous unit.

Reflection

I am not sure.

I need help.

Allows students

to assess their

progress through

each unit.

Gram m ar Rule s Glossary

A valuable glossary is provided at the end of Student Book 3. Teachers and students can use this as a

straightforward dictionary of grammar terminology, or as a summary of important grammar rules used in

Student Book 3. Page references are also given for the point in the book where the rule was first introduced,

so that students can go back to that unit if they need more information or further revision of the rule.

Pull-Out Writing Log

At the centre of Student Book 3 is a practical pull-out Writing Log so that students can directly relate

the grammar they learn back to their own writing. Students could store the Writing Log in their writing

folders, and use it to keep track of the grammar, language functions and types of texts they use. The

Writing Log also includes a handy reminder of the writing process, as well as a checklist of types of texts

and text forms for students to try.

Museum Visit

Last weekend my mum took me to the National Museum of

Australia in Canberra. We left home at 7 am and drove for

two hours. We arrived before the museum even opened.

I was excited to be able to go inside when it opened at

10 am. I saw lots of interesting exhibits and displays. There

was also a special area for kids. We ate sandwiches and

milkshakes for lunch in the Museum Café. After lunch we

went for a walk beside Lake Burley Griffin. The museum

closed at five o’clock so we finally had to go home.

A Tasty Invention

John Montagu invented the first

sandwich in 1762. Montagu loved

playing card games. He hated

to stop playing to eat or even to

sleep. One day he was playing a

card game that had already lasted

24 hours. He was really hungry

so he asked for some slices of

bread and some meat. Other

card players watched him put the

meat in between two slices of bread. He ate with one hand

while he continued to play cards with the other. His friends

named the bread and meat invention a sandwich because

Montagu was the Earl of Sandwich.

The Case of the Missing Robots

This is an

imaginative text. It

is the beginning of a

narrative. It uses noun

groups to describe the

characters and set

the scene.

On a peaceful island just off the coast of Australia there lived

a clever inventor. The inventor made robots. The inventor had

lived on the island by himself for many years.

He had nobody to talk to, apart from the robots, but he liked

it that way. A fast boat arrived each month to collect the

finished robots and sell them in Australia.

One day there was a huge explosion outside the robot

factory. The inventor went inside to check on his robots but he

couldn’t find a single one. They had completely disappeared.

Inventing Potato Chips

I saw a really entertaining

movie about the invention

of potato chips. A chef in

a restaurant in America

in about 1850 made

French fries. A customer

complained that the fries

weren’t thin enough. The

chef kept making them

thinner and thinner but the

customer kept saying they

still weren’t thin enough.

Finally, the chef fried paperthin

them with plenty of salt.

potato chips were invented.
