Grammar for Writing – Randomised Controlled Trial Study

Grammar for Writing: A Randomised Controlled Trial Study

This trial study, funded by the Educational Endowment Foundation, will explore the effectiveness and impact of the explicit teaching of grammar in the context of writing for Year 6 students, with a particular focus on FSM students.

Details on the trial study

Researchers have conducted several studies over the past 10 years exploring the relationships between explicit teaching of grammar in the context of writing, which have led to positive results.

Schools are eligible for this project if they have at least 20 students in year 6. It would be useful to know your whole school % for FSM/Ever6 as this helps to understand the profiles of participating schools.

Schools joining this research project will be randomly allocated to either the Intervention group or a Comparison group.

This research project involves Year 6 teachers participating in four CPD days and teaching two fully-prepared units of work, developed by the Exeter team.
