This writing conventions lesson focuses on correctly using commonly misused verbs, such as lie/lay, sit/set, teach/learn, and rise/raise. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students read the sentences, noting the choice of verbs. Then, they underline who or what the verb is affecting, and thus identify the correct verb. Finally, they write a new sentence with the correct verb. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.
