Product Description
This is the first 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 14 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 1 & 2 in this first unit. Chapter 1 covers the three definitions of grammar, correcting faulty idioms, a brief history of the English language and its evolution. Chapter 2 covers the ten sentence patterns and the basics of Reed-Kellogg diagrams, fixing run ons and fragments, and punctuating compound sentences. Also within the unit, students will create slang flash cards, neologisms, children’s books, and writing #1. 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.
