1. as -> that
此处是so…that…结构。....so distressed......that she left.....

2. slums前加the
slums后有of Chicago作后置定语,所以定冠词the 不能省略。

3. that -> /
that作引导词时,后面接的是句子,在本题中that后面是短语for factory workers,所以不用that。

4. well后加as

5. passive -> active
passive意为“消极的,被动的”。从文中可知Jane Adams是一位热心服务的人,因此她应该是积极的而不是消极地为人权而战。所以要把passive改为active“积极的”。

6. work –> worked

7. to -> on
have an influence / effect / impact on为固定搭配,意为“对…的影响”。

8. was -> were
此处的主语是Settlement houses,所以谓语动词要用复数形式。

9. rewarded -> awarded
reward意为“报答,酬谢,奖励”;award意为“授予,给予”。此处的意思应该是Jane Adams被授予诺贝尔奖,所以要用award。

10. which -> what
此处what引导名词性从句作done的宾语,整个名词性从句what she had done for the society作介词for的宾语。
