9.9 Run-on Sentences: Return to Your Writing

Read aloud the paragraph you wrote at the beginning of this chapter. Correct any run-on sentences that you find, looking especially at the three types of independent clauses that tempt people to write run-ons: those that give commands, those that start with pronoun subjects, and those that start with transitional expressions. Make any other improvements that the paragraph needs.

Read a classmate's paragraph, looking for run-ons. Suggest ways of fixing them.
