Helps students understand how to properly use adjective clauses in their writing and avoid the common problems students often make. Three detailed slides use animations to demonstrate three common problems:
- Adj. clause is not next to the noun being described.
- The main subject is missing a predicate
- There is no adjective clause. Relative pronouns do not always introduce adjective clauses.
I created this presentation after I asked my students to write sentences with adjective clauses in them; they absolutely bombed the assignment! I used this presentation to highlight the most common mistakes and show them the solutions. I saw marked improvement after this review!
The best part of this presentation is that it has several moving parts that really help students understand how and where adjective clauses should be used in a sentence. Download the preview file to see how a misplaced clause is animated to move to the correct position.
