Reflection: Checks for Understanding Conjunctions: Complex Sentences - Day 3 - Section 2: Independent Practice


Students often had trouble deciding where to place the comma. I directed them to the examples written on chart paper I’d posted on the board. I kept it posted as a visual reference. I wanted students to recognize that there are rules of grammar and that they should get in the habit of looking them up when unsure. Encouraging students to review the rules beforehand decreased writing errors.
