Middle years and up
- Recognise the components of a verb group in any type of text.
- This lesson is part of a series designed to build students' language about language, so they can analyse text with greater confidence and fluency. This particular lesson introduces the components of verb groups, using some of the language of systemic functional grammar, including main verbs and secondary verbs, tense helpers and modal verbs, and a little about passive voice. Because we cover modality, the lesson is quite long, and should be led by a teacher.
