Instructional Architecture for Teaching Past and Past Participle Verb Forms.
Noting that using correct verb forms is a problem for many elementary school students, and especially for those who are speakers of nonstandard English, this paper presents an instructional program for teaching past and past participle verb forms in writing to students in grade 3 through 6. The paper outlines the content of the instructional program and suggests materials for use within it. The bulk of the paper consists of appendixes that contain (1) a list of regular verbs appropriate for use with elementary school students, (2) a similar list of irregular verbs, (3) a chart classifying the irregular verbs according to the structure of their past and past participle forms, (4) a scope and sequence chart for verb instruction, and (5) sample workbook lessons.
