Study Skills tip: Grammar practice in your reading work

Posted on February 8, 2013. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: , |

When you need to review or practice a grammar concept, look for it in your reading work you are already doing that day.

You can choose any section of your novel or text book and find nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositional phrases, infinitives, fragments, and much more.  🙂

Try using the text you are already reading to quiz a friend or family member.  For example, have them tell you which type of conjunction is used in a sentence you point out or in which tense a passage is written.

Some novels intentionally contain grammatical errors; see if you can find them!

Reading the text closely for your grammar concepts will help you reinforce your grammar work and also give you another lens through which you can view your reading.
