Parsing Sentences Worksheet: Verbs

Today is April 26, 2018. In 1986 on this day, an explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Pripyat, Ukraine. It’s the birthday of John James Audubon; interestingly, he is buried in Trinity Cemetery on 155th Street in Harlem. Today is also the birthday of the man who is arguably the major figure in landscape architecture in the United States, Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed, here in New York City, both Central Park and Prospect Park.

Here is a parsing sentences worksheet for verbs. I understand this is an old-fashioned kind of activity, but that doesn’t render it obsolete. In fact, I maintain that these shore exercises are an effective way to help students understand both English usage and syntax in sentences.

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.
