This online unit helps seventh graders gain grammar skills. Students work with phrases and clauses to build compound and complex sentences, ensure agreement between subjects and verbs and pronouns and antecedents, improve usage, choose effective nouns and verbs, and practice using commas, semicolons, colons, and dashes. Each of the 26 lessons starts with an instructional video followed by rules and examples. Two illustrated grammar activities and one writing activity help students practice what they learn.
You get Google doc activities, answers, standards correlations (grade 7), and more teaching support. Students who struggle can shift to Strengthening Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation (grade 6), while high-flyers can move up to Reinforcing Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation (grade 8)—more online units in the Inside Grammar series.
Improving Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation works well for in-person and distance instruction. You can assign activities on paper or as part of a Google Classroom workflow. Each standards-based lesson is correlated to CCSS, LAFS, and TEKS.
