I've created a way for you to incorporate parts of speech into your writing program. These exercises can be done in about 90 minutes. Your students are instructed to research "interesting" places (Ice Hotels, Bermuda Triangle, Winchester Mansion) and write about them, showcasing whatever part of speech is being focused on.
You will find an assignment for nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and conjunctions.
Grading rubriks are also included for each assignment.
