Are you tired of students using sentences like this -
"He is right because he said that to her about it when they went there in the novel."
Use this writing activity to show students the results of being vague by using too many pronouns AND how to fix the problem.
This is an engaging activity that shows students how to correct this common writing problem. In this fun activity students first read a story. The story is ridiculous because it uses SO MANY PRONOUNS that it is difficult to tell what the story is actually about. Students re-write the story with nouns, proper nouns, and noun phrases so that the story makes sense. Students need to be a little creative in interpreting what their own story is going to be about.
The end products are creative and fun for students to read in class. My students and I always end up laughing at some stories and admiring others. In addition, students get the point that too many pronouns are confusing.
Because this activity is engaging, students don't realize how hard they worked to read, analyze, create, and present.
This printable is complete and ready to use with explicit directions. This could be used as a great activity for a SUB PLAN or a RAINY DAY ACTIVITY. Also great if you are, like me, tired of reading student writing that talks about how, “She and he went there to do that.”
• Printable story

* BONUS: Additional worksheet asks students to label the story structure: conflict, climax, resolution, etc. of their own story.
