Are errors in parallelism hurting student essays? Parallelism is a difficult concept in writing. When you see a lack of parallel structure in student writing, show students how to fix this writing error with this quick grammar activity.

This parallelism activity is print or digital. This grammar lesson provides practice for students to identify a lack of parallel structure and correct the errors in a direct way.

Included in this parallelism structure lesson:
✓ A presentation that outlines the elements of parallelism with examples.

✓ 25 sentences TOTAL.

✓ A pretest (five sentences).

✓ Task cards (20 sentences, one per task card).
✓ Answer sheet for students to write the corrected sentence (numbered).
✓ Answer key.

✓ All of the material in digital format. You will receive Google Drive links to the presentation, pretest, and task cards.

Students should implement parallelism in their writing, and this activity sharpens those editing skills. Parallelism errors can be fixed with targeted grammar practice and application to writing.

So helpful as another way to get my students to engage in writing and understanding parallel structure. I was very pleased with this resource.

This resource is useful for teaching parallel structure. I feel like I fall short on teaching it on my own. I'm glad I have this to supplement what I already do!

Excellent way to teach parallelism!
