As students become more interested in the content taught when it relates to their own lives, this unit makes connections between typical adolescent problems and essential writing skills, the rules of subject-verb concordance. Step 2: Guide students by practicing the application of the subject-verb convention rule (conducted practice). This can be done by indicating the students` sentences. In each sentence, one game must conform to the subject-verb and the other will disagree with the subject-verb. You can use the examples in the verb agreement 1 presentation subconstimation or create one. 1. Set Rule 1 of the subject-verb agreement presentation or write the following notes on diagram paper for students to see: Students practice applying the subject-verb compliance rule by identifying the singular and plural parts of the language. Step 4: Let students try this task independently after the exercise. Distribute the worksheet you created for the independent exercise. Step 1: Explicitly explain to the students the information from the presentation of Rule 1 of the technical verb agreement.
Check for irregular verbs if necessary. Step 3: Guide students in choosing the grammatically correct sentence and explain why their choice is correct. (e.g. Players are already in the game. vs. Players are already in the game.) Instructions: Complete each sentence with the right message. 2. Prepare a worksheet to allow students to practice applying this rule independently.
For this worksheet, format your sentences in the same way as in the following practice conduct. Be sure to leave room for students to explain why each answer is correct in accordance with the ASA rule. Also included in: Editable Writing Process Poster: Back to School Bulletin Board, Grammatik Poster Step 5: Make sure students explain why their choice is correct based on the SVA rule. Gather students` independent worksheets and assess their ability to apply the ASA rule. Create two versions of your independent worksheet. A version should contain more complex sentences for your students at the most recent level up to advanced students. The other version should contain simpler sentences such as the examples in the directions below. Check the homework of completed students. If the worksheets show a consistent misunderstanding of the ASA rule, re-educate the rule.
