Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Writer's Workship & Grammar Instruction on Manipulating Sentences - Section 1: Manipulating Sentences Grammar


Learning Sentence Structure.  I found the students to be genuinely interested in this activity, and they all completed it well.  One clarification would be on nouns.  Many students only identified the subject, while the prompt asks for all of the nouns in the sentence.  The second page of the handout (not in photo) ask students to identify the type of sentence in question.
