chapter 3.9 Subjects: Return to Your Writing

Read aloud the paragraph you wrote at the beginning of this chapter. Find several verbs, and then find their subjects by asking "Who/what (verb)?" Most subjects will come before their verbs, but not always. Mark at least four verb/subject combinations in your paragraph. Trade papers with a classmate, and check each other's work. Wherever you disagree, give reasons for your opinions. Take your questions to a tutor or teacher.
