Teaching parts of speech in context can be a challenge. This package of PowerPoint lessons offers a straightforward way to help students understand different parts of speech and how to effectively use them in writing. The approach is to teach students that focusing on parts of speech is a great way to add details to writing. Thinking about nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs is also a great way to go about revising pieces of writing. Each of these lessons has colorful poster slides that help students understand the various parts of speech as well as writing samples that illustrate how thinking about parts of speech helps to improve writing. Stop drilling and killing the rules of parts of speech and start teaching them in context with authentic writing pieces. These lessons are connected to the book, The Writing Diner, by Tim Hargis.
