PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this printable, 4-page activity, students learn the importance of conciseness in writing.

They first examine examples of bloated wording and see how the examples can be written concisely.

Example:
(bloated) I have no extra cash at the present time.
(concise) I have no extra cash now.

Next, they have two pages of examples (40 examples in all) of bloated wording that they condense into concise wording.

Example:
(bloated) We met during the time that the class . . .
(concise) We met when the class . . .

An ANSWER KEY is included.
