Product Description
This is the fourth 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 8 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 5 in this fourth unit and builds upon the diagramming and identifying skills established in Units 1-3. Chapter 5 continues with the deeper dive into the form classes by looking at adverbial structures beyond the simple adverb. Students begin with reviewing adverbs and adverbial prepositional phrases and the new introduction to adverbial objectives. The unit builds upon nominal infinitives and adds in adverbial infinitives and the common errors of split and dangling infinitives. This is followed by a study of adverbial clauses and adverbs of emphasis and misplaced modifiers. In preparation for the SAT, students will also focus on double negatives and punctuation rules for all adverbials. Also within the unit, students will complete a revision of one of the previous writings (#1-#3) as Writing Asmt #4. Included are the rubric, editing sheet, and student essay examples. 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.
