Teacher Training -Grammar Based PPP
As an aside from my usual topics about using computers for language education, recently I am involved in a teacher training programme and would like to share an article I am working on to assist new teachers to plan a lesson.
As part of the course, trainees need to present evaluation lessons using a grammar based syllabus prepared with PPP.
I hope this will be interesting to other teacher trainers and helpful to trainees, and I would like to hear your comments and criticisms.

This is a very good article.
Though the grammar based approach is sometimes criticised, it seems that the method indicated in your article already gives due attention to context and to purpose.
The goal of your lesson is to enable your students to be able to freely produce the target language of your lesson in a meaningful context.
In fact, this is what we need when teaching grammar, especially for non-native speakers.
