This week in 7th Grade Lit-Comp we will continue our “Daily Diagramming” to work on the Adverb Clause and the way to use a comma when a sentence begins with one.
We will begin the week by sharing their narrative story summaries of The Lion and the Shepherd, which students used to practice outlining a narrative story sequence. Utilizing that outline, students were to write their own summary with good descriptive style techniques discussed in class. These included strong verbs and adjectives, -ly adverbs, figures of speech, and dialogue.
*Important: For new students and those needing more diagram/grammar review, please see the first Literature & Composition post of the year. I will be updating that post with links to short videos over the concepts we have covered in class, with newer material first.
