Middle school teachers are a special variety of educators who choose to be a part of a student’s “turning point” years. These teachers thrive on the energy and curiosity of their students. A good middle school teacher finds ways to channel students’ liveliness into their lessons. The more involved the students are in their learning, the better their retention of the material. GrammarActive Parts of Speech Series helps teachers to channel students’ liveliness into their lessons.Engaged students make classroom management easier too.
In middle school, students are reviewing the parts of speech and their functions within sentences and are expanding their focus to the principal elements of the sentence: phrases, clauses, direct and indirect objects, modifiers, subject-verb agreement. The objective is to show students how to use sentence variation in their writing.
GrammarActive offers a comprehensive and effective program to teachers looking for creative ways to hone these syntax and usage skills, not only through grammar activities, but also through writing, and literature citations. Our program provides over thirty references to the most prevalently required middle school reading selections.
GrammarActive® Parts of Speech Series is an action-packed interactive program that engages both teachers and students in the study of the eight parts of speech, sentence patterns, punctuation, clauses, editing, writing applications, and usage within literary context. Our program is especially useful for students with language based learning differences.
