When an English Language Arts standard focuses on developing and strengthening writing skills, students can also focus on grammar usage. One way to edit and revise writing is to ask questions regarding word choice particularly adverbs and adjectives.
Adverbs tell about verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Often, the adverb ends in –ly but not always.
The following questions about adverbs provide one way students can self-edit and strengthen their writing using adverbs. Are adverbs modifying verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs? What word tells when? What words tells how? What word tells to what extent?
