Reflection: Lesson Planning Editing our Writing for Dangling Modifiers - Section 1: Lesson Opener


Another way I could have taught this lesson is to have students draw images of their sentences. I could have had them take an example sentence, draw the literal image, then revise the sentence and draw it. They then could have done the same with their sentences and their partner's sentences. This could have cemented the reason why they need to edit their sentences.

Also, I used this review the next day, but could have used it in the lesson as well or in the closing.
