TED-Ed Lesson Examines Misused Modifiers

By Maryann Yin 

Are you a fan of incorporating modifiers in your writing? The TED-Ed video embedded above features a four-minute lesson that examines “how misused modifiers can hurt your writing.”

Writer Emma Bryce served as the educator for this lesson. Over at the TED-Ed website, viewers can access a quiz, a discussion board, and more resources.

In the past, TED-Ed has crafted lessons on a Walt Whitman poem, the hero’s journey, and the oxford comma. For those seeking a¬†little more linguistic fun, check out the “Word Crimes” parody song from “Weird Al” Yankovic.
