Reflection: Real World Applications Planning a Controlled Experiment: Jason's Revenge - or is it? - Section 3: Guided Instruction


This is the perfect place to help students understand the importance of grammar in the real world.  The words;  affect and effect, are so frequently confused, that many adults avoid using them altogether.

They are however, important words in Science.  If students are to be successful in Science, then they have to learn the language and the grammar that will enable them to be successful.  

As a part of my grammar instruction this week, we worked on this perplexing pair of words, so that my scientists didn't get tripped up.  

Here is a great resource that we used that contains definitions, as well as practice worksheets and a quiz.
