Fire up the boys in your class to write and write well with this energetic, football themed PowerPoint! The PowerPoint emphasizes the uses of mixing sentence types just the way Bo Jackson used to mix his sports during his professional career.
The PowerPoint specifically focuses on the use of simple sentences, compound sentences and complex sentences to speed up tempo, create emphasis, or give a nod to two sides of an argument.
This is a perfect PPT to engage students in writing, delivered in a fun format. This PPT includes notes, examples, visuals, and 28 slides worth of information!
For those with access to youtube, the lesson can begin with a few clips of the "Bo Knows" commercials from the late 80s. However, just as easily the teacher can verbally explain that Bo was a professional football player and baseball player (just like they will become a professional at using the different sentence types!).
