PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thank you for your interest in the Dangling Modifiers Illustrations and Sentences Set! In an effort to make my grammar lessons more interesting, I created this pamphlet to engage my students in some higher-order thinking. After teaching them about what misplaced and dangling modifiers are, I set them up with some illustrations of what the incorrect sentences mean and asked them to revise the sentences based on what the author logically meant to say. Since this is a skill that will translate into my students' various writing assignments, I felt it was crucial for them to actually see what the wrong sentences were saying and then correct the errors not just by rewriting them, but by illustrating them. Students completed the packets within groups for me (and seemed to enjoy them). Afterwards, we completed a whole-class review of each example, in order to prepare them for the unit project. I also included the directions for my project at the end of the packet. In groups, my students created instructional posters to teach future generations of middle schoolers how to correct misplaced and dangling modifiers. I was so happy with the final products that I will be using them for my documentation log this year. I hope that my product helps fellow English teachers to make grammar more visually engaging and fun! Although I recommend this activity for seventh or eighth grade, I do believe that it could be used (with some guidance) with younger students, as well as with older students. It also serves as a break from the old routine of grammar books and workbooks.
