This working paper focuses on the quality of the grammatical knowledge that is presented to learners in the classroom setting and how teachers can promote the appropriation of such knowledge by students. The approach proposed by the authors is predicated on the Vygotskyan principle that schooled instruction is about learners' internalizing and developing control over theoretical concepts that are explicitly and coherently presented to them.
