Product Description
This is the second 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 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 Chapter 3 in this second unit and builds upon the diagramming and identifying skills established in Unit 1. Chapter 3 covers the meticulous details of verbs. It begins by establishing from a linguistic perspective how the English verb is formed using the Verb Expansion Rule. Then it moves into Subject-Verb agreement rules, active and passive voice, and verb moods (e.g. subjunctive). Also within the unit, students will complete a more intense writing on Semantics and the Etymology of a Word/Phrase. 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.
