You’re In The Right Place If...

  • You love teaching literature, but you don’t feel as confident with your grammar instruction.
  • You have never found a way to teach grammar that is fun and meaningful for your students.
  • You are a little shaky on some grammar concepts yourself.
  • You know a good lesson when you see one, but you don’t have the time to put together dozens of great grammar lessons.
  • You’re not entirely sure of what grammar concepts your high school students truly need to know.

A Better Way To Teach Grammar At A Glance

Introducing Grammar With Mentor Sentences

A full-year grammar curriculum that is based on the research that students learn grammar best when it is integrated into their reading and writing. Grammar with Mentor Sentences gives you a full scope and sequence of grammar instruction for your 9th and 10th grade students.

What Is Included In The Curriculum:

1.0

16 Anchor Lessons

Concepts include parts of speech, phrases, verbals, clauses, sentence types, punctuation, parallel structure and more.

2.0

Hands-On Activities

Use these hands-on activities to reinforce the concepts in the anchor lessons. Students remember more when they get to interact with the mentor sentences in a hands-on way.

3.0

2 Interactive Review Games

These are fun and purposeful; they're a great way to review before a quiz, or simply as extra practice if you choose to not give the quizzes

4.0

Over 50 Quick-Write Writing Prompts

These engaging, quick writes give your students just enough structure to work on crafting their writing with specific grammar concepts.

5.0

Optional Quizzes

Optional quizzes allow students to observe more mentor sentences and practice their writing craft.

6.0

A Video Tutorial In Every Anchor Lesson

This breaks down each grammar concept for you, in case you're a little rusty on it, and provides teaching tips for how to present it to your students.

7.0

Unlimited access to me for any questions that come up as you're teaching the concepts!

A Bit More About The Video Tutorials And Having A Grammar Coach

  • Each lesson comes with a video tutorial for you, the teacher, that explains the grammar concept and provides tips for how to teach the concept to your students.
  • Plus, I am making myself available to you for a full year to answer any and all grammar questions you have via email or even text!

Will My Students Like It?

In every anchor lesson, I’ve used strategies to keep your students engaged and active.

  • Warm-up games that introduce the concept
  • Streamlined direct instruction, so students don’t “zone out”
  • References to musicians, movies, and pop culture in examples, that are customizable so you can change these to fit your students’ interests
  • Hand-selected mentor sentences that showcase the grammar concept
  • Interesting and fun photo and video prompts for students to practice their skills

Will The Concepts Stick?

  • As a classroom English teacher of 13 years, I created this method based on what worked with my own students. I saw more engagement than with any other method of grammar instruction, but I also saw my students use these concepts in the essays they turned in months after I taught a certain grammar concept.
  • The research supports my experience! When you integrate grammar instruction into other meaningful elements of your classroom, the concepts make more sense, and ultimately “stick.”

Don't take our word for it...

"I have tried many things for grammar, especially as bellringer type lessons but this has been amazing! The kids love the variety of exercises and the content. Missy has done such a thorough job of preparing the slides, lesson, exercises and games. It was worth every penny. I am actually looking forward to teaching grammar now!"

TONYA L. - 9TH GRADE ENGLISH TEACHER


“100% of my students enjoyed this method of grammar instruction more than the automated grammar program we had been using!”

SAM B. - 10TH GRADE ENGLISH TEACHER


"My students and I LOVED these resources. The prompts were funny and engaging. Students also enjoyed watching the short films. These are the kinds of activities that make it easy to "trick" students into learning. I love the idea of model sentences. In order for students to write well, they need to see what strong writing looks like. Thank you!"

COTY P. - 10TH GRADE TEACHER


"I am so glad that I purchased this excellent resource! I have FOUR preps this year, with both on-level and honors 10th and 11th. It is a huge relief to know that, at least one day a week, I can do the exact same lessons with multiple preps, and they are totally ready to go. The included planning calendar is also extremely helpful in sketching out my year. These lessons are easy to spontaneously differentiate by pushing high achievers toward a more nuanced analysis of sentence structures. At the same time, the work is accessible to my struggling students."

SUZANNE B. 9TH. 10TH, 11TH GRADE TEACHER


"My students loved these lessons. They are well-thought out and interactive. Ms. Davis has built in activities that the students can't wait to do. These lessons have helped both my high-flying and emerging ninth-graders."
