This presentation outlines how the study of linguistics improves teachers’ understanding and practice of scientific inquiry. Introducing linguistics to teachers is no easy task, given assessment pressures and the pervasiveness of traditional approaches to language. We show, however, that the scientific method allows teachers to discover grammatical categories and clause structure, and that teachers are then able to model and teach the scientific method in both the language classroom and beyond.
