Some time ago, I posted the first lesson from my unit on nouns. I believe very strongly in teaching the parts of speech as a pathway to greater literacy in the students I serve, and I have had good luck using these units with them. So, for this week’s Text, I offer the second lesson plan of this unit, on common and proper nouns.
I begin this lesson, right after the second bell rings, with this do now exercise adapted from The Elements of Style. After settling students with that short exercise, I move on to the mainstay of the lesson, which is this structured worksheet on common and proper nouns. Finally, you might find useful the teacher’s copy of the worksheet with the correct answers.
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.
