Recognize and correct inappropriate shifts in verb tense. Objective: Students will be able to successfully write a well organized paragraph using appropriate shifts in verb tense. Verbs can be PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE Present Tense - I am walking
Past Tense - I walked
Future Tense - I will walk When we write sentences we must avoid shifting tenses. I walked yesterday. I am walking. I will walk tomorrow.
Past NOW Future Anything that happens RIGHT NOW is the PRESENT
Anything that happened BEFORE NOW is the PAST
