Students become grammar detectives with Discovery Lists - Parts of Speech. A Discovery List is a teaching strategy I learned about in college many years ago, and I have created this particular one using the 8 Parts of Speech. Each slide contains two columns, Column A and Column B. Students analyze the underlined words in each column and determine which Part of Speech is used in each column. Each Discovery slide is followed by an answer slide with a brief explanation of the part of speech used in each column.
Discovery lists are great for test preparation. They can be used in a variety of ways: games, individual practice, remediation, warm-ups, and the list go on. Discovery lists never fail to engage students of all abilities.
