Hi! My name is Kate Bailey, and my store is called "Get EnglishEd." (Get it? :))
The following product is an assignment that I made specifically for my Honors 10th grade students. This could easily be modified for any grade level and certainly any academic level. I chose to assign this project after realizing how low my students were performing with grammar. I figure that the best way to learn is to teach - so that's exactly what I had my kids do! I chose grammar concepts that my students in particular struggled with (based on a pre-test I gave) - you pick the ones you know your students struggle with!
The product asks students to teach a grammatical mini-lesson to the class (either individually or with a partner). I think this is a great way to start the day, get some grammar instruction in (without you having to do it - PLUS! :)), and have the students take ownership of their learning.
I recommend following this same kind of assignment for literary devices, poetry, and more! I like to let my students teach the class - it takes the pressure off of me AND is a good way to change up the vibe of the classroom.
Thanks for checking it out!
