Correlative Conjunctions

Conjunctions may not be the flashiest part of speech to work with, but they are essential to good writing. A polished writer can utilize a variety of conjunction types in order to give writing variety and finesse. Proper use of correlative conjunction pairs - both/and, either/or, neither/nor, whether/or, not only/but also - encourages students to become stronger writers. Use these activities to increase your middle and high school students' comfort with and accurate use of correlative conjunction pairs.
