Product Description
OK, this one is really strange, but I like making my brain memorize random lists (doesn’t everyone?), and can make almost any method sound reasonable (at least to myself). A middle school student of mine had to memorize all 17 subordinating conjunctions. My first impulse was to alphabetize them and see what happened. It was so cool! All of them started with either A, B, E, S, T, U or W. Well, obviously this spells “A Best. . .” but what could UW stand for? UNDERWEAR! Yes! So, this is the A BEST UnderWear method for learning the 17 subordinating conjunctions. The conjunctions are listed under their initial letters in the left column. The students study them: 5 conjunctions begin with A, 2 with B, 1 with E, 2 with S, one with T, 2 with U and 4 with W. The other three columns give only the initial letter and numbers, so the students fold the first column under after studying, write down all they remember in column 2, note the ones that slipped out of memory, fold and repeat through column 4. Then they try listing all on plain paper. It worked well for this student and now I know them, too. And it’s FREE! Susan, Morris Tutoring Productions
