You'll enjoy teaching parallelism with this smart, differentiated set of lessons. Use these mini-lessons for five days to reinforce student learning!


Note: This product is also available in my bundleLanguage Arts "Must-Have" Lessons for essential skills.


Many students have not mastered the very simple language arts concept of parallelism (or parallel structure). This product is designed for you to spend a few minutes for several days teaching parallelism (anywhere from about 10-30 minutes each day, depending on the resources and your students' needs). Aligned with ACT Quality Core and Common Core State Standards, this packet contains the following resources:

1) Examples and Non-Examples PowerPoint with Exit Slip

2) Worksheet with non-examples pointed out in bold, to students make corrections.

3) Worksheet without any prompts.

4) Partner Worksheet (you can time this and make it a whole-class partner challenge).

5) Parallel Punctuation

6) Parallelism Web Project

7) Parallel Sentence Structure Quiz

Each contains a key with correct answers.

I recommend this packet for a week's worth of short mini-lessons (then assessment on 5th or 6th day). At this point, you'll know which students understand the basic concept, and which need RTI. However, it's not necessary to teach these lessons for five consecutive days. Fit it into your schedule as you choose.

Middle school (junior high) grades 6-8, high school (secondary) 9-10. RTI resource for 11-12.
