Echo Words Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is all about tautology, a common redundancy in English where phrases unnecessarily repeat the same information. In the first part, students are instructed to identify and underline tautological phrases within given sentences. The second part challenges them to rephrase these sentences to eliminate the redundancy. Through this two-step process, the worksheet provides a hands-on approach to recognizing and correcting tautology, improving students’ editing skills and their overall command of language.

The objective of this worksheet is to teach students how to identify tautological statements and understand why they should be avoided in effective communication. It helps them to cultivate a more precise and concise writing style by eliminating unnecessary repetition. This activity also reinforces the importance of word choice in conveying clear and direct messages. Additionally, by rewriting sentences, students practice the essential skill of revising their own writing for clarity and impact.
