An Imaginative Approach to Teaching Grammar / Sumaya Emjawer, Dina Al-Jamal
The purpose of this study was to test a new teaching pedagogy that may provide EFL 10th grade students in Jordan with more opportunities to learn grammar away from traditional communicative tasks. Thus imaginative approach strategies - leading to a master’s degree - were assumed as effective in promoting students' achievement in grammar. A teaching-material based on Action Pack 10, a pre-post multiple choice grammar test and an observation checklist for recording students' progress were constructed. Two tenth grade sections with 30 students at each took part in the study. One group was assigned randomly as an experimental group and the other as a control one. The study reported the effectiveness of the imaginative approach on students’ achievement in grammar at the significance level where α ≤ 0.05 in favor of the experimental group. The study, also, reported an increase of awareness as a result of using the imaginative approach.
