"I’ll Take Commas for $200": Instructional Intervention Using Games to Help Students Master Grammar Skills

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Effective writing requires mastering grammar. For journalists, this mastery is especially important because research shows poor grammar erodes media credibility. College writing instructors say students don’t understand basic grammar concepts, and greater numbers of college students are enrolling in remedial writing classes. This quasi-experimental mixed methods study examines whether using games to teach basic grammar skills helps college students understand and retain grammar concepts. It also examines student perceptions of their learning experience.
