Mini-lessons Cycle 2: Teaching Conventions in Mini-Lessons
Day 1: The Power of conventions
Challenge: Consider a possible mini-lesson that would show the possibility of a specific convention. To push yourself into a true inquiry-based lesson, choose a punctuation mark to tap into its power. Consider a guiding question for your mini-lesson like I did.
How is your attitude changing regarding teaching grammar?
What is the attitude of your class regarding conventions? What kinds of changes are you noticing?
