Product Description

An effective way to teach the conventions of standard English grammar and usage! Your eighth graders are both editors and writers, applying grade-level language skills to correct paragraphs and complete a related weekly writing exercise.

 

Daily Paragraph Editing, grade 8 reproducible teacher’s edition contains everything you need to lead targeted language lessons, including 176 reproducible student activity pages and corresponding teacher support.
 
The teacher’s edition includes the following “extras”:

  • scope and sequence chart
  • annotated answer key
  • assessment rubric
  • reproducible language handbook
  • page of reproducible proofreading marks
  • editing checklist for students

Daily Paragraph Editing grade 8 provides 36 weeks of frequent, focused language practice to help your eighth graders learn the conventions of standard English grammar and usage. The concise daily activities are ideal “warm-up” exercises to begin your language arts block and are adaptable for small-group and whole-class instruction.
 
How it works: students apply grade-level language skills to correct a paragraph on Monday through Thursday; when read together, the four paragraphs form a cohesive composition. A writing prompt on Friday relates to the week’s four-paragraph composition and gives students the chance to apply the targeted language conventions.
 
The weekly compositions cover a broad range of expository and narrative writing forms, including:

  • nonfiction texts on grade-level social studies and science topics
  • biographies, book reviews, instructions, interviews, journal entries, and letters
  • fables, fantasy and science fiction, historical fiction, personal narratives,
    and realistic fiction

 Daily Paragraph Editing grade 8 covers grade-level skills such as:

  • Capitalization
    • quotations, salutations, and closings
    • incorrect use of capitals
    • names of people, places, and organizations
    • titles of books, magazines, movies, and songs
  • Language Usage
    • singular and plural forms
    • verb tenses
    • correct use of pronouns and adjectival and adverbial forms
