Students often get turned off by grammar, so I try to make my grammar lessons interesting with the use of visuals, games, and student involvement.
This lesson teaches nouns, and the difference between common and proper nouns. Rather than define these words for students, I elicit examples from them, and together we come up with definitions that make sense to them. The lesson ends with a game that will show the teacher how well students grasp what was taught.
This lesson uses the workshop model and has a checkbox for the teacher to circle which standards they are using in the lesson. While it lists ESL standards and was used in a classroom with ESL students, this lesson is appropriate for students of all abilities.
