Register of enthusiasts for school linguistics

The Education Committee of the LAGB and the Committee for Linguistics in Education have been campaigning for decades to build bridges between academic linguistics and the UK’s schools. Now that we’re seeing some progress in this area we’re keen to build a list of people in the UK who share our enthusiasm. If you would like to see moreĀ  impact of linguistics on curriculum and pedagogy, please use this questionnaire to register your interest – and especially so if you are a school teacher or have been one. Registering here doesn’t commit you to anything except receiving occasional emails from us; and at any point you can ask us to remove you from the email list, or even from the register. The boxes are small, but they expand to accept extended answers; but please don’t feel obliged to enter a great deal of information – just a few words will do.

I lecture in German language and sociolinguistics in Wales and would like to see students coming to uni with a bit more sociolinguistic awareness as well as more metalinguistic knowledge.

Thank you for doing this. I’d be really grateful to be put in contact with any other people who have experience in teaching at the younger end of the primary age-range (Y1 – Y4). It’s essential we ensure children’s introduction to grammar is both developmentally-appropriate and informed by people who are aware of current problems in early primary education.
