Our Correcting Vague Pronouns lesson plan clarifies the proper use of pronouns, especially those with unclear and ambiguous antecedents. Most students by this age can easily identify a pronoun, but sometimes when writing they may use a pronoun incorrectly, causing confusion for a reader. Students are asked to collaborate on an assignment to create, and then ask their fellow students to correct, sentences using vague pronouns. Students are also asked to identify incorrect pronoun usage in given examples and then explain why the given sentence is incorrect.
At the end of this lesson, students will be able to recognize and correct vague pronouns, ones with unclear and ambiguous antecedents.
