Transcript of Let's start with our Montgomery Boycott quiz.

Now, let's begin a discussion of placement of participles.
Warm Up
Is the participle an adjective or part of the verb.

1 The
window had a crack in it.
2 The sun is
brightly through the trees.

3 The monster mask was
for the child.

4 The
cat cat was

5 The

Yes, you figured it out. When a participle phrase doesn't seem to be describing the right noun or pronoun, it is a misplaced modifier.
If a participle is before or after the word it modifies or after a linking verb, it is a participle adjective.
Just because it's after a linking verb, doesn't make it part of a verb phrase!
If you're stuck on this, ask yourself:
Is a noun literally doing this action?
Does the sentence make sense and give the same message if you replace the linking verb with "seem/seems"?
If the answer to these questions is yes, the word is a participle adjective.
If you have a participle or participle phrase that doesn't describe a noun or pronoun, it is a dangling participle.
If the participle phrase doesn't appear to be modifying the correct noun or pronoun, it's a misplaced participle.

CORRECTION: I ate the chicken wing drowned in sauce.
