Understanding what nouns can include helps learners to expand their vocabulary. It also assists literacy & numeracy teachers to illustrate the options involved in text creation. This, in turn, positively affects a learner’s ability to express him/herself.
This document serves as a companion to other ALNS resources about nouns. It assumes that the reader knows about nouns – i.e. that they name persons, places, states, things and times. It doesn’t seek to teach you about the structure of nouns per se but to highlight the angles that can present when teaching this subject. ALNS’ The Structure of Nouns is available as a .pdf and/or MS Word file.
Due to the nature of the online environment, it is not possible to provide a pre-purchase view of this resource. You are charged a nominal fee to cover a very small part of its production. How we stagger teaching and learning is subjective; I am not inferring that mine is the only approach. My aim in providing this resource is to help you prepare efficiently and revise what you need to. It is not a lesson plan so you will need to assess its appropriateness in your program.
