Grammar in Literature.
Grammar in Literature Activity: Use for Any Novel!
" Ready to show students that grammar is not just necessary, but beautiful? Use this multi-purpose activity to collect and examine grammar “in the wild” while reading!
Use any of the three different versions/templates of this activity as:
• Diagnostic: pre-assess what concepts students know (and can identify) in writing
• Practice: formatively assess if students can identify a concept once you have taught it, OR provide sentences that students must label.
• Focus: Look at just one grammar concept at a time (instead of several) and collect several sentence examples of it
• Activities: Use this as an individual or group scavenger hunt, sending students to look inside just one book (or many) to find examples of grammatical concepts!
• Reference: Pass out my filled-in version and let students refer to it all year long if they need to see what a concept looks like!
This classroom-tested activity can be flexibly used for a variety of the topics in CCSS grammar standards; several for grades 6-12 are already filled in."
