Message 1: Teaching Syntax

Subject: Teaching Syntax

Dear all,
At the moment I am engaged in the teaching of advanced syntax (G&B, 
minimalism...) at the University of Alicante. The problem is, there seems to 
be nothing in the teaching of syntax apart from drawing tree-diagrams all the 
time... Does anybody know about any alternative method? Are there any useful 
textbooks I can fall back on? In a word, is there anything like a "teaching 
methodology" for syntax?

Thanks a lot!
