PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint includes four word lists, each with a practice exercise and then a 30 point quiz for each list. The sixteen slides in this show review the usage of words such as affect/effect, lie/lay, further/farther and many more. I include an answer key for the practices and the quizzes.

Following each word list is a practice session. These exercises as well as the quizzes use the characters: Mrs. Hardcase, an English teacher, Dave Demittis (Demented Dave) the principal, and students: Bubba, Zelda and Bertha in a variety of escapades. They are the same characters that I created and use in my SAT Word Lists (also posted on this site). Students have always enjoyed their teenage antics.

If you prefer not to use this product as a PowerPoint, print it off (using the Full-Page option) so students have a hard copy to use for this word study..

You NEED these lessons to save your sanity when reading essays that use rise when the writers means raise, for example, and any time they mix-up these Troublesome Words. Enjoy.
