The Compound Sentence: Correcting Run-ons and Comma Splices

Do some of your writers need an extra lesson on correcting run-ons and comma splices?

The second page of the worksheet asks pupils to correct the errors they find in a paragraph and to combine independent classes with a coordinating conjunction and a comma or a semicolon to make compound sentences.
