Comprehensive Plan

Activity: Inclusive & Accessible Language

Revision considerations to date:

  • Shortened sentences, e.g., 2 sentences at 4 and 7 words vs. 1 sentence at 18 words.
  • Switching longer words with their shorter synonyms •Use of active voice vs passive voice
  • Use of simple (e.g., built) vs perfect tenses (e.g., has been built)
  • Removal of unnecessary adverbs and adjectives
  • CHALLENGE: Flesch-Kincaid grade level is still around 10 due to the nature of the text (Readability scores from Readable)


  • In small groups review the original and updated language. Pay particular attention to the problematic sentences (highlighted)
  • Offer your suggestions
  • Share highlights with a large group
