PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Note: This is paired with our parallelism test and available here:
Grammar Bundle: Parallelism Test and Semicolon Unit

Quit correcting semicolon errors by teaching it thoroughly. Student materials work very well for a flipped classroom approach for certain student populations. The semicolon lesson plans focus on writing techniques; lessons are constructed to provide theory and practice (practice topics include driving safety, study habits, reading choices, video gaming and social media reviews). Lessons detail the use of semicolons with clauses, conjunctive adverbs, and within lists. A demonstration of parallelism as it relates to semicolons is included in the clause section.

This semicolon unit consists of three semicolon mini-lessons with practice, a pretest, posttest combination, suggestions for differentiation and extended practice. The unit is written as instruction for students in grades 9-10 and review for students in grades 11-12. Semicolons offer an advanced hierarchy of punctuation and sentence construction to those skilled in decoding and writing such compositions.
