Product Description

Parallelism is a grammatical structure that poets, writers, and speech writers use to make their writing more lyrical and more effective. When two or more parts of one or more sentences have a similar form, a pattern is created. Repetition is a common element in parallelism, and in this activity, students take a look at examples of parallel structure. One of the most famous examples of parallel structure occurs in the repetition used in the “I Have a Dream” speech by Martin Luther King Jr. This resource includes a worksheet on which students create examples of parallel structure in their own writing.
