‘Rome is a Place Where … – Tips for Teaching Adjective Clauses’

Busy Teacher team has released worksheet on’Rome is a Place Where … – Tips for Teaching Adjective Clauses”.

“I am from Rome. Rome is very nice. People eat spaghetti in Rome. I like it a lot.” Any teacher who has ever encountered writing like this knows that students like to write in short simple sentences.

To push them out into more complex sentences, a fun grammar point to teach is adjective clauses. They’re one of the most commonly used grammar structures, and they’re incredibly useful for teaching students to add more detail in their writing. Stuck on how to approach this complex topic?

The best way is to start simple. There are a lot of exceptions and nuances with adjective clauses. Eventually your students will learn all of these, but you don’t have to put them all out there at once. Start with the basics and teach them how to use whowhich, and that. Once they feel comfortable, add in where and when. After that, throw in whose and teach the difference between identifying and non-identifying adjective clauses.
