Learning the Parts of Speech with Flipped Lessons

“As a way to make the study of parts of speech more useful for students and to help create more class time for curriculum and developing enriched discussions, one of the ideas that will be discussed in this chapter will be how flipping grammar instruction has allowed me to create fun and engaging lessons around parts of speech that have led students to apply what they learn from my videos to their reading and writing daily. Throughout the chapter, the process of flipping my grammar instruction will be discussed along with other digital activities that can be completed after students watch instructional videos.”
