Reflection: Rigor Sentence Structure in Application - Section 2: Do Now: Match Game


This warm up reminds me of the grammar skill-and-drill I experienced in skill--here's the rule and here's a worksheet. Now you know it. As an English junkie, this worked for me, but a look at my Facebook feed tells me it didn't work for many of my classmates. I don't rely on this type of instruction in my classroom; rather, I use it as a warm-up for what really matters (and sticks)--application.
