PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let's face it; developing writers overdo the "to be" verbs in their writing. So let's explore a strategy that developing writers can use to reduce the number of or eliminate the "to be" verbs in their essays.

I call it the Substitute strategy and it helps writers replace most, but not all, of the is, am, are, was, were, be, being, been verbs with stronger verbs.

Check out my five-step strategy to eliminate “to be” verbs in this free lesson download. The focus of this lesson is on substituting weak “to be” verbs with strong linking verbs. You’ll get the Standards, D.O.K. levels, behavioral objectives, step by step lesson plan with some helpful links, student worksheet with practice and a formative assessment, plus the answer page. Please follow me if you find it helpful!

This worksheet helps you teach students which linking verbs work best as replacements for "to be" verbs in their writing. Just one of the great grammar in the writing context skill lessons found in my Teaching Essay Strategies program.
