Best of the Best Secondary ELA Lessons

I'm SUPER excited to be a part of this amazing Best of the Best Blog Hop with such incredible secondary English teachers, hosted by Secondary Sara!   We're also giving away 3 $25 TPT gift cards!  I have learned so much from them, and it's awesome to be sharing our lessons together.  Our goal is to share our best lessons in order to help other educators gain tips and resources that can be used in their classrooms.

As a secondary English teacher, I want to develop strong writers.  In the 21st century, it's imperative that students understand how to implement complete sentences and paragraphs that are descriptive, well thought out, and demonstrate a variety in length and structure.  In order to be able to do this, they not only need to clearly identify the various parts of speech, but they also need to understand what constitutes a simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentence.  Because these aren't always the most engaging lessons, I wanted to come up with interactive and digital activities that students would not only learn from, but would also have fun while doing them.  This is how my Digital Grammar Skills & Parts of Speech Bundle was born.

My students absolutely LOVED these activities and have grown so much in the process!

• Capitalization Digital Task Cards
