From Pergamum to Pallanteum

This qualitative research project sought to explore the journey across the landscape of language acquisition and the teaching of grammar. The abstract describes it,

“At the outset of this paper is the metaphor of a journey. The practice of teaching and learning is always a journey, a journey that is open ended. This journey functions at two levels, personal and academic.  At a personal level, the journey is from the existing praxis in my classroom to whatever may emerge from this process.  At an academic level the journey is from more traditional methods of Classical Language teaching and learning, to what might be suggested in the light of an investigation into relevant academic literature on language acquisition in general, and second language acquisition in particular.
