Note to Learners
You will form partnerships (in pairs) to design a single class open grammar book that summarizes content convered throughout the course. The open grammar book, which is designed to provide a grammar reference for all subsequent courses taken in the BA, will be created in Pressbooks (pressbooks.com) and will include text, images, and links to learner-created videos. Each pair will present a grammar topic seen in class by developing two paragraphs (five-to-eight sentences for each paragraph), and each pair will prepare a 15-minute video that shows both paragraphs along with their analysis and explanation of the three aspects from grammar in context (i.e., meaning in context, forms and meanings, hypothetical meaning, collocations, and lexical chunks) and at least one example of each of the following functions: noun phrases, prepositional phrases, verb phrases, and compound phrases.
