Múineadh na Gramadaí sa Seomra Ranga

Course Overview

This course will help teachers in the senior classes tackle all things ‘múineadh na gramadaí’ in the classroom. It will focus on what to teach and when, and explore the place of grammar within the PLC. It will provide participants with an overview of individual short and long term planning for teaching Irish grammar and also explore the role whole school planning can play.

The course will look at how to structure a grammar lesson, and delve into many of the grammar topics that present in the classroom with a variety of teaching ideas that are child-centred, fun and practical. Participants will investigate a range of resources to assist the teaching of Irish grammar and also come away with a goodie-bag of Is Múinteoir Mé grammar resources. *This course does not focus on developing your own understanding of grammatical rules, but rather how to teach them in the classroom.

About the Author

Aislinn Nic Pháidín

Aislinn has been working as a primary school teacher since 2013 and has a passion for all things education, but in particular the teaching of Gaeilge.

Her love for Gaeilge stems from her experience at both primary and secondary level, having attended a Gaelscoil and Gaelcholáiste in Co. Kildare.

Despite her own love for the language, Aislinn recognises that not all teachers have the same experience, attitude or confidence .

She also delivers training courses to teachers across the country to support various different aspects of 'múineadh na Gaeilge' and hopes to make Gaeilge exciting and accessible for all teachers and pupils.
