In today’s episode of Teaching Middle School ELA, we’re talking about a no-prep grammar activity that your students are going to love. We’ll be discussing common grammar mistakes like illogical verb shifts and pronoun errors, and how to teach students to avoid them. While teaching grammar can be difficult and a bit dry for our students, this fun and engaging activity will capture your students’ attention and help them improve their writing at the same time. We’ll walk you through our Golden Grammar Hunt activity that will help your students master grammar in a fun and interactive way.
