This book is a wonderful resource for turning extra classroom minutes into valuable learning time. The 180 quick, reproducible activities work well to supplement lessons and offer students practice in revising and editing. Students edit paragraphs to correct punctuation or spelling. Other editing tasks include changing voice from active to passive, using phrases or pronouns to combine sentences, and fixing dangling modifiers. The activities can be used at the beginning of the class to get students into learning mode, near the end of class to make use of transitional time, or in the middle of class to shift gears. However you choose to use the activities, this resource is a convenient and useful supplement to your regular lesson plans. An answer key is included at the back of the book.
