Product Description
In this lesson, students will begin with a do now where they respond to a prompt about describing a journey to school. Then, students will complete a side-by-side analysis to determine rules for composing an interrupter within a sentence. (answers below) Students will then look at a series of sentences and determine if the interrupters are composed properly. If they are not, students will fix by adding a comma or relocating a comma. Students will then add interrupters to five provided sentences. Students should be prompted to identify nouns as an easy place to add interrupters after. Finally, students will rewrite their do now paragraph and will add and highlight three interrupters.

side-by-side analysis answers: An interrupter must be enclosed within a pair of commas. The purpose of an interrupter is to add extra information for emphasis, tone, or emotion.
Interrupter: non-essential information enclosed within a pair of commas designed to add emphasis, tone, or emotion or to add description.
