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.

Find the Errors! is a light-hearted approach to this age-old challenge. 37 passages contain short, humorous anecdotes, letters, crossword puzzles and more. But each passage is also riddled with errors!

Now it's up to your students to go into those passages and identify and annotate the mistakes. They'll work on spelling, capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, and style. For middle school students, this is a very successful way to engage them, while giving them a palpable sense of accomplishment as they improve each  passage. Extensive teacher support includes grammatical rules, answer keys, additional activities, and tests for easy assessment
