I found this presentation on Slideshare. Slideshare is an online site where those who have created slide presentations can post them so others can enjoy them. It’s been referred to as “YouTube for PowerPoints” because users can create a profile, follow others, and “like” and make comments on presentations.
This is “Groovy Grammar! Interesting ways to learn grammar!” Author Shelly Sanchez Terrell shares 29 slides with ways to make learning grammar not just interesting , but also fun. None of them are, “Open the book and copy the sentences.” I love to teach grammar, so I would use many of these ideas.
Slideshare has many possible uses. In literature class, I could have students write and illustrate the story elements of a recently read novel. The digital images and words can be viewed by others as a summary of the novel, and I can assess the student’s vocabulary and comprehension, as well as their understanding of the story elements.
