Grammar is Everywhere!

(Even in Your Kitchen)

This Integrating Technology eBook is designed for Mrs. Davis' Tenth Grade Literature class at Pierce County High School in order to promote understanding about the relevance of grammar to our everyday lives.

Yep, That's Grammar!

        a. Demonstrates an understanding of proper English usage and control of grammar, sentence and paragraph structure, diction, and syntax.

        b. Correctly uses clauses (i.e., main and subordinate), phrases (i.e., gerund, infinitive, and participial), and mechanics of punctuation (i.e., end marks,         commas, semicolons, quotation marks, colons, ellipses, hyphens).

        c. Demonstrates an understanding of sentence construction (e.g., subordination, proper placement of modifiers, parallel structure) and proper English         usage (i.e., consistency of verb tenses, agreement).
