I'm a PGCE student on my final few weeks of placement two. I'm currently teaching Year 9 the simple future tense in Spanish. I don't know necessarily whether this is a department thing or something that is happening at present, but it's been brought up a couple of times by colleagues. As a department, students are given the vocabulary from the current module as a photocopy from the textbook. My colleagues wish for me to teach grammar with as little writing as possible - especially with my higher ability students. I've been marking books of late, and there are some lessons where all the students have written down is the title, date and LO. I know I'm not experienced enough yet or haven't got my own classes, but how do I teach grammar if the students don't write or copy anything down in lessons? I'm completely stuck!
