Product Description
This is the fifth 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 6 in this fifth unit and builds upon the diagramming and identifying skills established in Units 1-4. Chapter 6 continues with the deeper dive into the form classes by looking at adjectival structures beyond the simple adjective. Students begin with reviewing adjectives and adjectival prepositional phrases and nouns as adjectives. The unit introduces students to participles and participial phrases and correcting dangling participial phrases. This is followed by a study of adjectival or relative clauses and who v. whom. In preparation for the SAT, students will also focus on adjectives v. adverbs, comparatives and superlatives, and punctuation rules for all adjectival phrases and clauses. Also within the unit, students will complete Writing Asmt #5, a philosophical analysis of a publish article as preparation for the “reading” score on the SAT Essay. Writing #5 and Writing #6 (in the next unit) combine to teach students how to write the SAT Essay. Included are the rubric, discussion guides, example article for class dissection, articles for the assignment, 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.
