Inductive grammar teaching is when a student is given a chance to discover the grammar rules by noticing, observation and drawing his/her own conclusions.

This can be done as a whole class activity when a teacher carefully guides the students to the desired outcome.

Here is the quote; That students did as well with the inductive presentation as with the deductive offers strong evidence against the notion that an inductive approach should not be used for difficult structures.
