This week, there are two writing skills: one easy and one challenging. Both are related to a degree.

The skills are:

  • editing wordy sentences
  • using better verbs

This is a pair work writing exercise. It is challenging because you have to describe the action of a ball and line as they try to illustrate a concept. This exercise asks you to expand and improve your understanding of verbs.

Suggested Writing Process
