Help your students express themselves more confidently and effectively!
High school students often want to convey complex thoughts in their papers, but sometimes their language skills haven’t quite caught up to their ideas. The result? Run-ons, subject-verb and pronoun disagreements, and sometimes just plain jumbled sentences.
My series of no-prep mini-grammar units is designed to help teenage writers understand the building blocks of English in clear, detailed, and step-by-step manner so that they can employ more sophisticated structures in their own writing.
Real-world examples show students to understand how to apply concepts in context, and challenging exercises let them practice what they’ve learned. Rather than ask students to perform the same processes over and over again, or plug in by rote, the questions in this series also develop students’ critical thinking skills by testing concepts from a variety of angles. They also give students the opportunity to work with the types of higher-level sentences they're likely to encounter in English and History classes but may struggle to compose independently.
As a bonus, these sheets also prepare students for the grammar they’ll encounter on the SAT or ACT.
Check out my other sheets for subject-verb agreement, pronoun agreement, comma and semicolon usage, relative pronouns, modification, active vs. passive voice, and parallel structure.
