Secondary students practice using parallel structure when writing independently- or with classmates.
Each of the 16 task cards has two sentences (32 total items for practice) that need to be corrected to have parallel structure.
There are many ways to use these cards:
Option 1- Assign each student a card for an exit ticket or homework.
Option 2- Pair students to work together on one card.
Option 3- Give an entire sheet (4 cards) to each table of students. Each table should have the same card. When all tables are finished, ask one person from each group to write one of the sentences on the board. Discuss. The next day, have each table complete another entire sheet.
Option 4- Put an entire sheet on each student’s desk. Instruct him to only answer ONE SENTENCE. Pass the sheet. The new student should correct the 1st sentence, if needed, and complete the 2nd sentence. (The third student should correct the 2nd sentence and complete the 3rd sentence- and so on.)
Additionally, I have divided the 32 practice items onto 4 worksheets. These worksheets are perfect for homework- or differentiation!
