On the subject of teaching 'grammar, I recently came across a very interesting review of research on the subject. I think much of the research referred to was done in the United States, as it happens. 

I had read some of the work referred to in this report before, and I think the work of Hillocks influenced our school national literacy strategy.  I found the review interesting and thought provoking, so I am sharing the reference with the list.
