Determining whether to use who vs. whom in questions is a critical grammar skill for middle school students. Explaining the difference to students (object vs. subject) can be confusing for students, so this lesson relies on the easy he/him rule for students to easy differentiate between who and whom.
The bundle includes an anchor chart to hang in your room and distribute as a quick reference for students. It also includes a 3-page lesson plan with introductory notes, a scaffolded practice, and 3 practice rounds with 30 questions in total.
