Prof. Dr. İbrahim Seçkin Aydın and published by PEGEM AKADEMİ. 

“We Thank All the Writers who contributed”

The preface written by the editors included the following statement: “Many theoretic or applied studies have been done on grammar from past to present and, the ways of using grammar within the educational environment is discussed. The notion of how to teach grammar is approached from grammatical and pedagogical aspects both in Turkey and international platforms. In general, constructivist and metacognitive oriented views were put forward in existing programs and these opinions were tried to be reflected in the curriculum. The book that you are holding is based on a wide literature review conducted both nationally and internationally regarding the grammar teaching methods throughout the history. We would like to thank each of the writers of the book who have contributed by writing chapters for the book. With this book, our desire is to address the gap in the literature”.

During his speech on the contents of the book, EMU Education Faculty Dean Prof. Dr. Ahmet Pehlivan stated that this book, which was prepared as a result of long efforts, will contribute to the re-discussion of grammar teaching in terms of academicians, from what angles teachers should look at grammar, and to teacher candidates in the faculty.

“A New Field of Discussion”

As Prof. Dr. Pehlivan, the book aims to shed light on the discussions on grammar teaching, new educational models and how grammar teaching is applied in different parts of the world and continued by saying: “Book discusses grammar teaching models in our country, in Turkey and all around the world. Basically, we aimed to create a question mark in the minds of academicians. We think that a new discussion area will be created with the book”.
