Synopsis

No matter how much teachers may talk about the importance of solid writing skills, nothing beats giving students the opportunity to make their own edits.

Revised and updated by popular demand, Find the Errors! is a light-hearted approach to this age-old challenge, and an easy and effective way to improve your students' writing skills. 37 reproducible activity worksheets containing short, humorous and high-interest anecdotes, letters, and crossword puzzles will capture students' interests; the twist is that these worksheets are riddled with common writing errors! Now it's up to students to read the passages, identify the errors and rewrite the texts correctly. As they learn the technique of proofreading, they become adept at locating the same errors in their own writing.

Five units focus on spelling, capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, and style. Included with each activity are overviews of the texts and exercises, brief teacher notes, and suggestions for hands-on and cooperative extension activities. Pretests and post-tests for each unit allow teachers to assess student mastery of proofreading skills and determine specific areas in which students have difficulty. Answer key included.
