The Weekly Text, September 4, 2020: A Lesson Plan on Comparative Adjectives

This week’s Text is a lesson plan on the interrogative adjectives. These are the words which, whose, and what when they are used as adjectives.

The lesson begins, in the interest of getting kids settled after a class change, with this parsing sentences worksheet on nouns; if the lesson spills over into a second day, here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on the concept of the ultimatum–and don’t forget to tell students that the plural is ultimata. Here is the scaffolded worksheet that is at the center of this lesson, and here is the teacher’s copy of the worksheet to make this a little easier on you.

That’s it! Have a good weekend, and Godspeed if you are returning to school soon.

Parsing Sentences Worksheets: Pronouns

Here is my last set of parsing sentences worksheets, these four on pronouns. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts about this type of document, I’m not sure if anyone parses sentences anymore in classrooms; I think it’s a defensible exercise, particularly with struggling readers and writers. and it does teach the concept of basic English usage–something, alas, that doesn’t appear to matter in New York City schools.
