OK, things at Mark’s Text Terminal are returning to something resembling normalcy, which means I’ll return to the Weekly Text format for the big post of the week.
So, this week’s Text is a lesson plan on the verb to be used in the present progressive tense. I open this lesson with this Cultural Literacy worksheet on the idiom Bone to Pick, as in “I’ve got a bone to pick with you.” In the event the lesson spills over into a second day, here is a worksheet on the homophones prophet and profit.
You’ll need the worksheet at the center the lesson to do the work; you’ll probably also want (but you don’t necessarily need) this word bank as a learning support. Finally, here is the teacher’s copy of the worksheet.
That’s it: stay safe, be well, stand up for what’s right.
