The quotes come directly from the text. Students will receive the quote from the text with errors, and teacher has the fixed version to share after students complete. These can be written on the board by the teacher or copied onto a white board program such as a Promethean or Smartboard. Just copy the fix it to project, or cut the answer key and provide a copy to the students to fix on paper. For this activity students will identify who said it, how it is pivotal to the chapter, and fix the errors, without looking in the text. Find an example of the first chapter below. Great for getting students COMMON CORE ready by analyzing text as well as grammar and spelling.
