Product Description
This is the seventh of eight units that comprise the Advanced Grammar and Rhetoric course (feel free to download the free syllabus to get a better idea of the course content). The unit is written for a block schedule of 7-9 days but may be adjusted as the teacher sees fit for any length of class period. Using Kolln and Funk’s Understanding English Grammar as a text (available online for cheap!), students will work through Chapters 9 & 15 in this seventh unit and apply their previous knowledge from Chapters 1-8 to the usage of Coordination and Subordination. Chapters 9 and 15 explore the meticulous rules for using commas, colons, semicolons, and dashes. It also explores faulty subordination and parallelism and parenthetical structures. We add in a fun Grammar Superhero project too. Also within the unit, students will complete Writing Asmt #7, a critical review assignment that requires students to write a review from opposing positions -- once praising the topic and then again criticizing it, in an effort to apply voice. Included are the rubric, student essay examples, and edit sheets. Every unit includes a modeling exercise and an SAT vocabulary list. All concepts are assessed on a final unit quiz, which is the culminating assessment after a series of worksheets and a practice quiz. This is my favorite course to teach and is by far the most popular English elective in school. You are going to get kids to LOVE grammar. Answer keys are available, and you may always ask me questions as you progress through the unit. I want to help you be successful with this.
