PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This misplaced and dangling modifiers bundle is part of a larger grammar bundle, the Apples and Oranges Grammar Bundle. You will save over 20% off with this grammar unit bundle.
*****
NOTE: The power point of this product was updated June 2016.

Students often struggle to identify and correct misplaced modifiers, as well as dangling modifiers. Also - many questions on standardized tests (such as the ACT) focus on troublesome modifiers.

I created this PowerPoint and accompanying activities to help my students for these reasons.

This bundle includes:

* A grammar power-point with 16 slides. They cover the definitions of misplaced and dangling modifiers and provide examples. Students are prompted to manipulate sentences and then correct misplaced and dangling modifiers.
* A paragraph that needs corrections in several sentences. I have included two versions of this paragraph for differentiation. One version identifies the sentences with errors; the other version does not identify the sentences with errors.
* 3 worksheets, 15 practice sentences total. One worksheet covers misplaced modifiers; one worksheet covers dangling modifiers; one worksheet covers misplaced and dangling modifiers together.
* Answer key included. The powerpoint also includes speaker notes for the teacher.
