This online unit helps tenth graders gain grammar skills. Students create a variety of independent and dependent clauses, ensure parallel structure, create absolute and verbal phrases, use noun and verb phrases, work with irregular verbs, create perfect and progressive tenses, study pronoun case and gender, improve usage, study connotation and denotation, use figurative language, and practice using a variety of punctuation for correctness and effect. Each of the 25 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 10), and more teaching support. Students who struggle can shift to Refining Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation (grade 9)—another online unit in the Inside Grammar series.
Mastering 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.t
