Unit 1104: An Outline of Grammatical Elements.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Center for Curriculum Development in English.
The purposes of this 11th-grade unit on language are to survey the most important grammatical elements of the English sentence and to synthesize grammatical principles previously learned in grades 7-10 of the curriculum. The unit moves from discussions of the simplest grammatical elements to the more complex: Bound and free morphemes are defined, and ways in which they are combined in word formation are determined. The roles of nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs in phrases and sentences are inductively presented. Basic sentence patterns are then expanded by transformations into other types of sentences--questions, negations, complex sentences, sentences with indirect objects, sentences with predicate objects, and sentences in the passive voice. Finally, the more complex basic syntactic patterns of predication, complementation, modification, and coordination are analyzed. The materials include procedural notes, sample lecture-discussions, and worksheets. (See TE 001 265, TE 001 268, and TE 001 272 for previous grammar units.) (JB)
