PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These lessons have revolutionized how I teach grammar and writing! They come from a workshop I attended at NCTE, led by Dr. Lisa Waner. I have created 6 assignments in this file, all with questions that relate back to Macbeth.

Essentially, students receive the assignment on a Monday and turn them in on a Friday. It is only two sentences, but they must be perfect. If they are not, I put a check mark on the line with the mistake, and it's up to the students to find their error, fix it, rewrite the sentence, and resubmit.

The benefits are huge! First of all, it's super quick grading. Second, it makes the kids responsible for looking critically at their own writing and fixing their mistakes. Third, they must pay attention to directions! Fourth, it allows me to help them vary their syntax. I may ask for one sentence to be four words and the next to be 24. Finally, they have to fix and write their sentence correctly, and, as Dr. Waner said at NCTE, "Practice makes permanent."

I usually assign one every week of the school year. Throughout the year, I see huge improvement in my students' writing!
