Individualized Grammar Work and Reflection Context: After developing language proficiency in your own language, you are now becoming academically proficient in English as readers, writers and researchers! Inevitably, there are areas in which you need additional, individualized practice and review. Here are some steps to help you polish grammar skills. Go to the “Diagnostics—Section Quizze (Links to an external site.)s” in Grammar Quizzes.com. (Links to an external site.) (Scroll down to middle of page.) Choose a diagnostic on a grammar structure you need to review (if you are not sure which structure you need, do a general diagnostic first. Then choose a specific grammar structure). Take a quiz in that section. Compare your answers to the “Feedback” section; for errors, open the link, read the explanation. Do additional practice as necessary. Write an assessment and reflection of your work. See example below. Be prepared to share what you learned about your selected structure with the class. Assessment Reflection Guidelines/Sample Instructions: After doing individualized grammar work on this site (Links to an external site.), write a reflection on your grammar work by answering the questions below. You may do up to three of these. 1. What Structure (Add the appropriate link) did you study? 2. Why did you choose this structure? 3. What is a correct example of the structure? 4. What is an example of an error with the structure? 5. What rules did the site explain about the structure? 6. On what page in your Hacker “Rules for Writers” is this structure discussed? 7. What did you learn? What will you do differently? How will you remember? Individualized Grammar Assessment Reflection Example: 1. What Structure (Add the appropriate link) did you study? Subordinate Clause Diagnostic (Links to an external site.)–Changing quoted speech to reported (indirect) speech. 2. Why did you choose this structure? I chose this structure because I think that learning how to integrate direct and indirect speech might help me use quotes in my essay and also help me to write what someone said without using quotation marks. 3. What is a correct example of the structure? John asked what our favorite invention was. (Note the word order is not question word order). 4. What is an example of an error with the structure? Anne explained that she uploads — correct is “had uploaded” (earlier than moment of speaking) or “uploaded” (past–sequence of events) — to the web so she could share them. 5. What rules did the site explain about the structure? The site explains that in indirect speech, subordinate clauses are back-shifted to the time frame of the verb in the main clause. 6. On what page in your Hacker “Rules for Writers” is this structure discussed? Hacker does not trace verb tense shifts in direct to indirect speech, but does write that past perfect is used for “actions that began or occurred before another time in the past” (p. 258). 7. What did you learn? What will you do differently? How will you remember? You must write 5-10 sentences answering these questions. Use examples and be specific. The focus of this diagnostic was the reporting of direct and indirect speech. As a non-native speaker of English, I don’t always remember that there is a difference in how these are used. I do not take sufficient time to backshift tenses. For improvement, my plan is to go through when I proofread my Draft 2 of an essay and underline all direct and indirect speech. Then, I’ll double check that I’ve used the correct verb tense to match whether it’s direct or indirect (backshifted). I will go back and refer to this website page and my notes on this grammar structure. That way, I’ll remember to do it correctly. I will do this until it becomes a habit to use the structure correctly.
