    I was very concerned when I gave the “Fragments and Run0on Sentences” practice. The sentence “Having went to the store to buy food for dinner” has a GLARING grammatical error.

    The students were asked to correct fragments or run ons, not verb tense.

    I had to have a special lesson because they all didn’t see an issue the first time through.

    Hello,

    I think number 15 on the answers sheet is wrong. –
    15. If Jan, my sister, | and I go to the mall again, | I’ll surely walk around and shop. – only two clauses (there shouldn’t be a line between “my sister, and I”

    Thanks for your amazing website!!
