Grade(s): 3-5Subject: Language ArtsStudents develop real-life editing skills for superior writing and top test scores!
Description & Features Editor in Chief® improves your child's grammar, punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and attention to detail using a standards-based thinking approach rather than drill and practice. This effective method teaches students to carefully analyze and edit stories that contain errors in writing mechanics and story details.The grades 3–4 (Beginning-level) stories combine single skills (like capitalization) with guided, gradual instruction and practice that is ideal for younger learners. The grades 4–5 (A-level) stories involve mixed-skills practice, starting with easier errors and becoming more challenging as students become adept at the editing process.Students identify and circle errors in each story. Then they insert, modify, or delete punctuation, words, and short phrases to make corrections. An editing checklist and annotated guide to grammar, usage, and punctuation are provided to help focus students' thinking and allow them to match their answers to applicable rules. Detailed answers are also included.
Editor in Chief's standards-based approach sharpens students' language, reading, and thinking skills for better academic performance and higher scores on assessment tests including:
Iowa Tests of Basic Skills® (ITBS®) Indiana Statewide Test for Educational Progress (ISTEP) Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) NYC English Language Arts Test (ELA) Stanford Achievement Test™ (SAT/9; SAT/10) California Achievement Tests (CAT/6) and many more!
