That Which Matters: Grammar Unit

Have you ever had students confused about when to use that instead of which in sentences, or when to insert a comma between two clauses? This unit can help. It provides videos, exercises, a graphic organizer, and a quiz. This will demystify these grammar rules for your students. It is a great set of resources because it allows for a lot of teacher flexibility: the videos and the activities can be completed as homework, or done in class. They can be assigned, or provided as extra resources.
