Publisher Description:

This fun, highly-effective 216-page book teaches students in Grades 9-12 grammar, punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and critical reading in a standards-based thinking approach instead of the usual drill and practice found in competing products. Students begin with an easy-to-understand lesson followed by an activity that require students to carefully analyze and edit stories, letters, or articles that contain mechanical errors. This effective method allows students to gain mastery over concepts that will translate into their own writing.

Editor in Chief® Level 3 includes lessons and practice with the following concepts:

  • Capitalization
  • Apostrophes
  • Colons
  • Comma
  • Exclamation Marks
  • Hyphens
  • Question Marks
  • Quotation Marks
  • Parenthesis
  • Periods
  • Semicolons
  • Adjectives
  • Adverbs
  • Agreement
  • Articles
  • Clauses
  • Homophones
  • Homographs
  • Interjections
  • Nouns
  • Phrases
  • Preposition
  • Pronouns
  • Run-On Sentences
  • Sentence Fragments
  • Verbs
  • Confused Word Pairs
  • Spelling
  • Category Description for Editor in Chief Books A-C, Levels 1-3:

    Make your student(s) the editor in chief! With these consumable books children edit punctuation, grammar, content, and usage; learning while they're having fun. Each lesson starts with a short instructional sequence that is followed by four practice edits. These edits provide an error-filled article or letter with an illustration and caption (no errors in these). The number and type of errors is supplied for each edit. There is also space for the student to write out a corrected version. There are mini-reviews every three lessons plus longer reviews midway and at the end of the book. All answers are in the back of the book. A previous edition of this series had two books at each skill level. These have now been combined with added instruction into a single book at each level.

    I used this product with my first two children and they were able to get decent scores on the ACT. Now my third child is preparing for the ACT and will be using this to help her.

    We have used the earlier levels of the EiC program. Now it's time to buy the next one. I like that it teaches grammar in a more realistic context. No diagramming sentences!

    I have found the Editor in Chief workbooks to be interesting to my children and valuable for helping them have the necessary tools to write well, by practicing finding errors in the writing of others.

    I've used this before and it helps me to know how well my teens have learned basic grammar and writing skills. It is pretty quick to use each day thus they don't tire of repetitive exercises.

    A shopper on Sep 7, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, the answers are in the back of the book along with a grammar guide. Note that my purchase was about two years ago - version 15.02-version 1.00.

    Hope that helps!

    Not for teaching but for review
    I had never used Editor in Chief before but had heard wonderful things about it. I still think it will be a good resource eventually, but I don't feel the description of the book makes it clear that there is no 'teaching phase' for this book. You just go straight to editing.
