Knowledge of Language

What is this?

​Curriculum for Excellence has made explicit the expectation that all staff have a responsibility to contribute to the literacy development of learners. However, not all education professionals are fully confident in their own understanding of how language works. The Knowledge of Language resource provides staff with a way of accessing further information about some of the common features of our language.

It covers sections on:

  • parts of speech
  • punctuation
  • grammar and syntax
  • tricky spellings
  • common confusions.

The resource also has a 'Test yourself' section along with an answer booklet.

Who is this for?

Any staff who need support in their understanding of English language and how it works
