Product Description
When reading a student’s essay, how many times have you thought, “Great point!” only to see him or her make that same point again and again throughout their paper without digging any deeper? When the stories turn fictional, how many times do you read about the same character’s eye color…and their hair color…and the fact that they wear jeans and the jeans are blue?

If you’ve had it up to here with your students’ repeated language, than this worksheet is for you. This comprehensive worksheet defines and illustrates what repetition and redundancy are through definition and example. It then provides a checklist of ways to fix both issues, and questions students should ask themselves when making edits. The checklist is a tool that can be reused across many assignments. Throughout the worksheet, there are a number of “Sidebars for Nerds” to explain at greater length the deeper psychology behind repetition and redundancy so that students can understand their tendencies and do something about them, rather than just feel bad about them. Finally, the worksheet offers a passage for students to edit, allowing them to test their newfound understanding and skills. An answer key follows.
