Revised and updated by popular demand, Find the Errors! is an easy and effective way to improve your students' writing skills. These reproducible worksheets capture student interest with humorous, high-interest anecdotes riddled with common writing errors. Students locate the errors in each activity and then rewrite the text correctly. As they learn the technique of proofreading, they become adept at locating these 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 text and exercises, brief teacher notes, and suggestions for hands-on and cooperative extension activities. Pretests and posttests for each unit allow you to assess student mastery of proofreading skills and determine specific areas in which students have difficulty.
As students work through these activity sheets, they'll develop confidence in their writing and learn how to communicate more effectively. This updated edition of Find the Errors! will engage your students while providing practical reinforcement of essential skills.
