Dangling Modifiers #14

Worksheet Description

The “Dangling Modifiers” worksheet features a list of sentences each containing a dangling modifier, a common error where a descriptive phrase does not logically correspond to the subject it is intended to describe. The students’ task is to rewrite these sentences so that the modifiers are correctly placed, thereby eliminating ambiguity or unintended humor. The worksheet provides direct practice in recognizing and resolving these errors, which can otherwise lead to unclear and incorrect sentence structures.

This worksheet is intended to teach students how to identify and correct dangling modifiers to enhance the clarity and precision of their writing. Through this activity, students learn the importance of ensuring that descriptive phrases and clauses in a sentence clearly and logically relate to an appropriate subject. The exercise not only improves their ability to construct grammatically correct sentences but also helps to deepen their overall understanding of sentence structure. As a result, students are better equipped to express their thoughts clearly and effectively.
