    In the sentence or In a sentence?

    Can you guys please help me the right sentence between these? I wrote a lesson plan and when my friend read the objectives, he told me that one of these is not gramatically correct. He said I must change -in the sentence to in a sentence. I am looking forward for your help.

    If you are teaching students how to use "is" and "are" then "a" would be correct since you would be teaching them how to use the words in any sentence. If you use "the", then you are referring to one specific sentence. Both are gramatically correct but the second one probably is what will happen.

    See above for my amendments to your post in red.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
