Putting Grammar Into Practice
Grammar works better in conjunction with writing! For this unit, students will work together to review the parts of speech in grammar. They will then take that knowledge to collaboratively research a persuasive paper on why grammar should or should not be taught in school. Not only will students be required to think critically about the topic, but they will also be taught the steps to writing a research paper without having to spend the time finding many resources and taking notes. They will be doing those tasks together. Students will also learn how to write a thesis, an outline, an introduction, and how to cite. As they write their papers, they will be asked to use their knowledge of grammar to write with dynamic words.
