  2. 2. ‘CLAIM CENTRALITY’ • EXAMPLE: • “Most language teachers and students would agree that the teaching and learning of the grammar of a second language is important...” • .... • “However, the extent to which grammar has any real affect on the acquisition process has been the subject of debate.”
  3. 3. LITERATURE • “Most notably, Stephen Krashen in 1992 said that ‘X, Y, and Z...” • However, Lightbrown and Pienemann took issue with that statement and replied that “Blah, blah, and blah.
  4. 4. TALK OUTLINE • “The purpose of this talk is to examine some of the evidence for...., and – based on that discussion – make some suggestions for the classroom.”
  5. 5. (If your position is for grammar teaching) THE RATIONALE AGAINST • (If your position is against grammar teaching, then this slide would be THE RATIONALE FOR) • ALWAYS YOUR POSITION SHOULD BE THE SECOND, NOT THE FIRST IN THE SEQUENCE
  6. 6. THE RATIONALE FOR (or against...)
  7. 7. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS • Other literature, examples, etc... (further building of argument)
  8. 8. CONCLUSION • MAKE THIS STRONG • TIE IT BACK TO INTRO, AND RECAP POINTS MADE • SOFTEN CLAIMS AND REFER TO NEED FOR CAUTION/MORE RESEARCH • FINAL STATEMENT
