15.8 Consistency: Return to Your Writing

Read aloud the paragraph you wrote about a turning point. Identify the time framework (or frameworks) and the dominant point of view. If you find inconsistent verbs or pronouns, adjust them. Then look for clauses or phrases that make a series of points or give a number of examples. See if you can strengthen the organization by using parallel elements. Correct any sentences where the lack of parallelism seems confusing. Make other changes to help a reader follow your thoughts.

Read a classmate's paragraph in the same way.
