Didax Skills Series

All > English / Writing & Grammar > GRAMMAR SKILLS (GRAMMAR/USAGE/MECHANICS) > Editing > Didax Skills Series

This series offers serious practice with editing skills. Narratives, reports, expositions, and procedures are the main types of writing that students will work with. They will edit and do various other activities for sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, and spelling. The aim is to create a high level of proficiency in editing and proofreading skills. A teacher page accompanies each student worksheet and provides the lesson focus, background on the type of text, and answers. Plenty of additional teacher aids are included throughout each book. Student pages are presented in two different ways; both are similar, but one allows students to become more familiar with formats they may encounter on some standardized tests. On the student pages, a specific text type is identified and then a passage or text is given for students to read. The text has all types of errors; sometimes students correct them directly on the passage and sometimes they just list or identify them. Most contain several different aspects to work on. For instance, on one student page a Punctuation section instructs students to insert 5 capital letters, 5 grammatical commas, 1 ending punctuation, and 1 set of parentheses; a Grammar section instructs students to find the incorrect verb tense and then write the correct one; a Spelling section makes you find and correct the 5 misspelled words; and a Writing section makes students draw lines where paragraph breaks should be. Many pages also include short vocabulary sections, but not every student page will cover all the different aspects. Several editing checklists are available to help students master the process of editing, and about 40 student pages are included in each book. With plenty of editing practice in a variety of writing styles and lots of teacher helps, this series will help improve student editing and proofreading skills. Each book is 104 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
