Writing with appositives is an effective way to add complexity and sophistication to students' written work. This packet is useful for assessing knowledge about appositives.
The packet includes a review sheet that helps students practice identifying appositives and using correct punctuation. There is also a section that asks students to transform simple sentences into one complex sentence that includes appositives.
The three-page, 20-question assessment tool provides an array of questions on the same topics. Multiple-choice and free-response items ask students to identify appositives, use punctuation correctly, and write sentences using appositive phrases.
Answer keys for the review sheet and the assessment are included. This resource is created by Stephen Campbell.
