Why use boring generic sentences to practice subject/ verb agreement when students can read about influential real people? This is not instructional material but is a practice worksheet or quiz with twelve sentences where the students choose the correct verb out of a pair to achieve subject/ verb agreement. The agreement problems include compound subjects, intervening phrases, collective nouns, etc.. The sentences are about famous African Americans from the 1800's until now. At the end of the worksheet is an extension activity which can be required or extra credit where students choose one of the individuals mentioned, do further research, and create a poster and paragraph about the famous individual. There is one page of the worksheet, and the answer key is provided.
