Parsing Sentences Worksheet: Adjectives

Here, early on a Tuesday morning, is a parsing sentences worksheet on adjectives. While I realize that it’s an old-fashioned activity subject to a variety of criticism, most of it valid. However, I’ll still argue there is an argument to be made for the cognitive exercise involved in parsing sentences, particularly for students struggling with literacy issues. If nothing else, a short exercise such as the one on offer here provides students with an opportunity for a moment or two of mastery, which can make all the difference in a class period–if not an entire school day–in meeting the emotional needs of our students.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
