How Can Teachers Use It?

Grammaropolis' Prepositions module includes a variety of engaging resources: A music video explains prepositions; two short skits demonstrate what prepositions are and their role in prepositional phrases; a comic ebook reinforces the concepts; and several quizzes help check for understanding. The music video is about a scout troop working toward a merit badge and features a motivating speech about prepositions being "pre-positioned for greatness." 

Have your students work through the resources at their own pace. They'll encounter a series of quizzes as well as some multimedia explanations of prepositions. You'll get reports of their progress, and you can circulate to help clarify the concept or address any points of confusion. If it's time for review, use the movies and skits for whole-class instruction, pausing to reinforce any oft-misunderstood concepts.
