Grammar! How to Make The Abstract More Concrete

With all the abstract terminology used in grammar instruction it’s no wonder that our students shout out “person, place, or thing” whenever you ask them the meaning of any part of speech. That seems to be the only one they know. How do we move past teaching grammar in an abstract way and begin to incorporate concrete strategies? During this webinar we will discuss ways to make grammar more concrete and meaningful, and attendees will learn:
Strategies for teaching grammar in a concrete way
Key questions for teaching parts of speech
A hands-on strategy for expanding and varying sentence structure.
