Editor in Chief Workbooks offer grammar, usage, and punctuation review and proofreading practice.
Each Editor in Chief® Workbook is divided into three sections.
- In the first section are the proofreading exercises. In this section your student will find the grammar, usage, and punctuation errors in a reading with a captioned picture—like a real editor.
- In the second section you will find the corrected reading with the answers explained and referenced to an English rule in the third section.
- The English rules for grammar, usage, and punctuation are show by category such as capitalization or part of speech. Each rule has a number that is referenced in the answers so your homeschool student can find it easily.
Each of the workbooks in this series are reproducible for single-classroom use.
Practice real-life editing to improve language mechanics and academic performance with Editor in Chief.
If your child needs “proofreading” practice in context, this book accomplishes the task. I always have my students do these, especially the Level C books for high school.
We recently used Editor in Chief C-2 for an intensive grammar and punctuation review for our sons. Every day for an hour or two we went through several lessons together. The boys took turns proofreading the paragraph and finding the grammar and punctuation errors. When they seemed stumped, I read and explained the rule from the third section of the book. As the boys found the errors I asked them to give an explanation. This reinforced everything they learned and reviewed.
One son unconsciously corrected the errors as he read. When you proofread, you have to overcome that tendency of your brain to “fix” what you are reading. You’re never too old to learn. I finally connected the dots when we did Editor in Chief and understand a comma splice.
