Pop in a Popper
Reading Teacher, v64 n6 p456-458 Mar 2011
This article describes Pop in a Popper, an effective lesson for teaching students how to choose and use words to give their writing fluency and flair. Pop in a Popper introduces the appositive: a group of words inserted after a noun to modify that noun. In simplest terms, writers pop this group of words into a sentence to tell more about a noun. Unlike an adjective, which goes before a noun in English, a popper is popped in after the noun.
