Find the Errors! Proofreading Activities
"In the book Boy's Life, Sammy gave his reason for not cutting the grass as follows `If it gets long enuf it'll fall over from its own wait.'" Amusing sentences, stories, and jokes rife with errors in spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and usage challenge students to detect and correct mistakes. Almost 40 reproducible exercises progress in difficulty to culminate in rewrites that help student editors build vocabulary, vary sentence length, and improve clarity. Summaries of grammar rules, follow-up activities, and answer keys are included.
