The Weekly Text, September 25, 2015: A Learning Support on the Verb To Be

In my experience, most students at some point struggle with the idea, both in theory and practice, of subject-verb agreement. I worked my way through college and graduate school tutoring students in writing, and more than half the time, students were referred to the writing center for subject-verb agreement issues in their prose.

This week’s Text is a simple learning support that conjugates the verb to be and explains one way of making sure that subjects and verbs agree. The school year has started, so this is a quick entry between adjusting instructional materials for this year’s freshmen, writing an IEP, and preparing lessons for my upcoming absence on account of jury duty. Are you this busy?

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
