Whats My Subject? A Subject-Verb Agreement Minilesson
High school students explore subject-verb agreement using examples from newspapers and song lyrics. In addition to reviewing and identifying both correct and incorrect subject-verb agreement, students look at when it may be appropriate to use ungrammatical language and talk about the difference between formal and informal language. They then make up quizzes to share with their peers. The emphasis of the lesson is on asking students to discover how this important grammatical rule is used (or deliberately ignored) in a variety of settings.
