Hey everyone, I'm due to start my PGCE in Secondary English this September and in preparation I've been using a self study guide to audit my knowledge. Now most of this I'm OK with but the part on grammar seems unnecessarily in depth. For example: talking about things like cloze procedure, subordinating conjunctions and identifying passages of text in very close grammatical detail, to the extent of recognising every passive/active sentence, the specific prepositional/adjectvial phrase used etc. Now my degree was in English Literature so I clearly have some work to do to get my language knowledge up to scratch, but I'm becoming concerned that I won't have the required knowledge to teach Key Stage 3/4. I can understand these more difficult concepts well enough but find it hard to express them in technical grammatical language. Do I need to be able to do this or would this sort of level of detail be only appropriate for Key Stage 5?
