PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a second semester’s worth of M.U.G. Shot Monday lessons, where students master Mechanics, Usage, and Grammar by working together to proofread real-world writing examples. These 19 weekly grammar editing sessions address the most common errors made in middle-school and high-school writing. Match with this Semester 1 bundle and you’ll have a full year of effective, easy-to-deliver grammar lessons.

I present these lessons on Mondays because I like alliteration (M.U.G. Shot Monday has a nice ring, no?), but you can use them anytime you want. Most semesters run 18 weeks, but I threw in an extra M.U.G. Shot in case you have an extra Monday (or whatever day) on your school calendar.

Students write down the flawed sentence and then work together to edit/make corrections. After the class agrees on all of the edits made by the student writing at the board, I go over the marks, explaining the rules that apply. After three sessions, I collect the students’ papers and give points for accuracy.

Packet includes:
• 19 weeks of 10-minute grammar practice sessions (38 total slides) in both Notebook format (for SMARTBoard users) and Powerpoint (for all users)
• 19-page PDF to use for student handouts and quizzes
• 38-page PDF of full semester materials, both unmarked and corrected sentences (useful for absent students or independent/homeschool study)

SMARTBoard users will find interactive slides with window shades and digital ink tools, while Powerpoint users can project the slides onto a regular white board and have the students use regular dry erase pens to make their edits.

All slides come with a corrected version, which you can share with the class and discuss or use on your own as a key.
