Spot It! Faulty Coordination
What is faulty coordination? Faulty coordination means that two clauses are joined together in an illogical order. Here is an example of faulty coordination: Although she walked to school, it was snowing. The order of these two clauses does not make sense. Now, here is the sentence rewritten without faulty coordination: Although it was snowing, she walked to school. The order of the two clauses is logical, making it an appropriate sentence. This printable worksheet on editing and proofing asks students to read through ten sentences and identify the ones that contain faulty coordination. It is ideal for 5th – 8th grade students, but can be used where needed.
