TLF ID L9958

Assess your ability to construct sentences by creating a recount of a cartoon about a dog in a backyard. Select phrases to create sentences and build a basic factual recount. Rearrange the phrases to create the best word order in the sentences. Who was involved? What did they do? When, where or how did they do it? Add adjectives and adverbs to make the story clearer and funnier. Choose a picture to go with the recount. View and print a report of your results. This assessment object is one in a series of four objects.
