THREE worksheets that work well for assessment, remediation, reinforcement, morning work, or enrichment
Sheet 1: 10 sentences on two pages.
Directions: Each sentence below contains a vague pronoun reference- a pronoun without a clear noun antecedent. Read the sentence and think about where the vague pronoun appears. On the first line, tell how the sentence could be confusing. Then rewrite the sentence, making sure the entire sentence accurately describes what is happening.
Sheet 2: Multiple Choice: 4 sentences on one page.
Directions: Read each of the sentences below. Choose the sentences that are written correctly – WITHOUT any vague pronoun references. Each group of sentences may have more than one correct answer.
Sheet 3: 6 sentences on 1 page.
Directions: Read each sentence below. If the sentence is written correctly, write “OK” on the line. If it contains a vague pronoun, rewrite the sentence so that the words are clear.
