Description

Ten reproducible poems that have middle-school appeal are paired with complete lessons to target key grammar concepts—predicate adjectives, direct objects, gerunds, clauses, compound sentences, and more. Nancy Mack's lessons provide a scaffold for students to grasp each concept and then use it skillfully in their own writing. Includes lively student models, literature links, and step-by-step publishing activities that help embed grammar instruction within the context of real writing. For use with Grades 6-8.
