AWKWARD WORDING: Sentences can be awkward for many reasons, but this product focuses on five of the most common. The slide show will introduce your students to awkwardness created by:
-Misused and misplaced phrases and clauses
-Faulty parallel structure
The slide show presents five mini-lessons that focus on each of the above topics. Each day you can:
1. Introduce one topic
2. Assign the corresponding exercise for class or homework
3. Review the concept from the previous day
4. Introduce the next concept and repeat until each topic is
*If you use this while students are working on a piece of writing, each day have them revise, based on the topic that you cover on that day.
Once you have covered each topic, students will work on the paragraph exercises. Each of these include a mix of the five types of awkward writing, so students will need to apply their knowledge in order to revise them.
I have included a handout and bookmarks that students can use while revising their work.
