Product Description

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. This lesson can be taught over multiple classes for students who need a thorough introduction to subjects and verbs, or used as a shorter review for more advanced students.

Topic include:

  • Parts of speech that can act as subjects
  • Different ways in which subjects and verbs can be separated within a sentence (e.g., by prepositional phrases or non-essential clauses.)
  • Agreement with indefinite pronouns and pronouns of quantity (e.g., someone, several, all)

Real-world examples show students how the rules work in context, and challenging exercises let them apply what they’ve learned to the types of complex sentences they’d like to use in their own papers.

Rather than ask students to perform the same processes over and over again, or plug in by rote, the questions in this lesson also develop students’ critical thinking skills by testing concepts from a variety of angles.

As a bonus, these sheets also prepare students for the grammar they’ll encounter on the SAT or ACT.

Check out my other mini-lessons for subject-verb agreement, pronoun agreement, comma and semicolon usage, relative pronouns, modification, active vs. passive voice, and parallel structure.
