This worksheet provide a good test for your students to find out whether they know the different kinds of sentence type, as well as parallelism. I believe that understanding these – and knowing what a fragment is – is essential for good writing. I teach this from intermediate level and up so as to break any bad habits that may form when doing other writing lessons.

When I do this test, I’ve already taught the concepts of sentence type and parallelism. The students should know it. This really is just a test, rather than a teaching tool. I helps me identify their problems, and it also helps them as well.

The first page has a sort of guided-discovery approach, followed by some identification and correction exercises. The answers are on the second page.
