Fun Topics with Grammar & Usage Topics

Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 11.39.56 PMLet’s initiate our first post and Google Forms follow-up with a reminder of how to use the apostrophe appropriately. Interestingly, this is one of those usage topics that reveals that there are different “acceptable” uses for this punctuation mark. Again, we will use these opportunities to cultivate a positive and critical disposition and think of the time spent reflecting on these writing rules as opportunities to learn them better. So the interior dialogue of a #growthmindset learner cheerfully looks forward to the process of getting to know this rule a little better. See how this mindset will help your learning. We’ll also have fun appreciating the genius of this great visual display. So let’s jump into the animation. Click here for the full image:

I will put a link to the Google Form in our email folder.

About Bill Sullivan

I am an English teacher working with great students at Suffield Academy. I also teach seniors in various project-based learning environments. Some of the #PBL topics included global issues, such as Pandemics, Climate Change, and Water; more recently I have asked students to research and identify topics important to our school community and their generation. We curate these topics with a #StudentCenteredPBL. For the past eleven years, I also created a driving question for a class to research a local history mystery and present their findings in a community program partnering with our local historical society. These topics encompass researching the lives of enslaved individuals who were contributors to the foundation of our community.
