  • Great resource. I find there are still students who don't know how to differentiate the important from unimportant phrases. I can't tell you how many would highlight the whole paragraph and say, 'ALL the words are important.' :).

    For those students, consider going back to lessons on subjects and actions verbs.

    To challenge the higher students, you can give them the same passage and say, 'If you were to give this passage a title, what would you call it? You'll get some interesting answers.

    Cheers,
