The unknown fourteenth-century author (a contemporary of Chaucer) has imbued his work with the heroic atmosphere of a saga, with the spirit of French romance and with a Christian consciousness. It is a poem in which the virtues of a knight, Sir Gawain, triumphant in almost insuperable ordeals, are celebrated to the glory of the House of Arthur. The impact made on the reader is both magical and human, full of drama and descriptive beauty.
This teacher's guide accompanies the sold-separately Fix It! Grammar: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Student Book 6, 3rd Edition(which is only necessary if you prefer a printed book, and not the free e-book that comes with purchase of this teacher's guide).
The beginning of the guide provides an overview of the layout and basic teaching instructions. The majority of the book includes the student sentences with the correct fixes, grammar notations, and style corrections needed to correct or instruct students.
This book also entitles the purchaser to a free download of the Fix It: Student Book 6 e-book, Mastery Learning e-audio, and But.But.But.What About Grammar? e-audio. 218 pages, spiralbound, 3rd Edition, with glossary section in the back. Grades 9-12.
Students will apply new grammar knowledge and practice their editing skills with the Fix it! series from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). Fix It: Grammar, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is the last set of books in a series of six (all books sold individually); books build skills progressively and it's recommended that students complete the books in order.
This student book requires students to work in a 4-section notebook obtained separately. Weeks begin with a "Learn It" section that explains what they'll be looking for; the grammar cards in the back are used in conjunction with this portion of the lesson.
Each day includes the same set of tasks; students read a sentence and look up the bolded word in a dictionary to decide the proper definition. On Day 1, students and teachers work together to help the student mark and fix the first sentence with a rewrite. On Days 2-4 students use abbreviations to mark the sentence by themselves. Finally, after marking, correcting, and discussing the sentences with a teacher, students copy the corrected full passage into a separate notebook so that they end up with a handwritten copy of the complete story.
The back of the book contains a section of grammar cards designed to be cut out and viewed with the "Learn It" section for the week. In addition, there is a separate glossary section that covers parts of speech; sentences /clauses/phrases; punctuation; additional rules and concepts; and stylistic techniques such as "dress-ups." 33 weeks. Student pages cover 69 pages; the glossary is 45 pages in the same book. Reproducible pages for children within the same family. Spiral bound. 3rd Edition. Can be used with grades 9-12. Teacher Guide sold separately.
The purchase of the teacher's guide comes with a free student e-book. This book is necessary only if not using the e-book version, or if you prefer a printed version.
