Smart Charts for Some Tricky Grammar is a collection of seven thinking charts to help students think through the "how" and "why" of grammar. Because grammar can be very abstract for some students, thinking charts help students to break down the grammar concept into small, understandable chunks.
The charts have samples to show students the thought process for each concept.
The charts may be used for whole-class practice, cooperative groups, or individual practice.
They can be used with textbook exercises, workbook exercises, or teacher-made exercises.
The following charts are included.
1. Preposition or adverb?
2. Prepositional phrases and their function.
3. Direct object or predicate nominative.
4. Appositive phrases: essential or nonessential.
5. Infinitives and their function.
6. Gerunds and their function.
7. Gerund or participle?
