This week’s Text, which I hasten to post so I can plan and execute some new global studies lessons, is an introductory lesson plan on adjectives. I begin this lesson with this context clues worksheet on the noun attribute; this word is a piece of prior knowledge that students can use when they encounter the term attributive adjectives. I have a more explicit lesson on attributive adjective that I’ll post in the not too distant future (I’m in the middle of revising it, for one thing). If this lesson stretches into a second day because of behavior that derails instruction, then here is an Everyday Edits worksheet titled “Sled Dogs Save Nome.” This proofreading worksheet that introduces the adjective is the mainstay of this lesson. Finally, you will probably find useful the teacher’s copy/answer key for the worksheet.
If you find typos in these documents, 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.
