Teach students to recognise prepositional phrases, understand their function, and use them to create meaning and expand detail.
Description
This lesson introduces prepositions and prepositional phrases, then uses rewrite activities to show the variety of circumstances and meanings that prepositional phrases can communicate, including where, when, in what way, and who with. This is a long lesson! We cover a lot of ground, and make a number of digressions to talk about the confusing nature of prepositions, adverbs and conjunctions. By the end, students should have a good understanding of how prepositional phrases create meaning and can be used to expand detail.
