Parts of Speech Practice

In previous years students would be given a packet of worksheets to complete detailing the eight parts of speech and their common sub-types.  However, the internet provides a vast array of resources for learning the parts of speech in the English language that exceed the instructional opportunities provided by worksheet-base learning.  Interactive exercises provide students with immediate feedback whereas a compilation of worksheets would often take time to assess and leave the learner with a marginal source of information at best.

Your assignment is to acquire a definition for each part of speech listed and to provide a sentence displaying the part of speech in use, underlining the part of speech defined.  This word-bank will provide you with a basic foundation of categorizing the various parts of speech.

Define the part of speech types and provide a sentence where the part of speech defined is demonstrated, underlining the word used as an example.

noun
proper noun
compound noun
pronoun
adjective

The following internet addresses are useful sites; many others are available as well.  Spanning the next several classes you are to take at least eight parts of speech practice quizzes/tests.  Print the final page only of each test.  You will be required to submit the final page of each test as evidence that you have invested the practice time in the parts of speech areas where you require the most remediation.
