Product Description

This sheet reminds students of the most common writing mistakes to avoid. I created this sheet based of of authentic mistakes my 9th and 10th students were making on formal writing assignments. Each error includes example(s). Some mistakes listed on this sheet include:

1. Avoid contractions.

Don’t vs. do not

2.. Avoid “very”, “a lot”, or “things”. Instead, use better word choice.

Very cold vs. frigid, frosty, chilly, icy

A lot of money vs. considerable wealth, plenty of funds, impressive income
