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.
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. These practices are ideal for reviewing previous instruction. You are not required to demonstrate evidence that you have completed the practices.
