Based on 7th grade Writing STAAR, the 5* PowerPoints are designed to cover as many editing student expectations as possible in the shortest possible time. No copying or distribution is needed. Students can record their answer choices on lined notebook paper. There are no passages. Each slide features a sentence(s) from which editing changes need to be made; a great “crunch-time” activity.
*The assessment PP is presented twice. One is in standard form, while the other (designed for re-teach) provides the correct answer with each slide for immediate feedback.
Standards covered in the PowerPoints:
CAPITALIZATION – proper nouns, abbreviations, geographical names & places,
official titles of people, titles of books, direct quotations, holidays, trademarks, historical events, closing of a letter, organizations, days of the week
USAGE – verb tenses, participles, commonly confused words, double negatives, subject-verb agreement, comparative & superlative adjectives

SPELLING - commonly confused homophones, change y to I, high frequency words, complex consonants, silent consonants, base words w/ affixes, double consonants in the middle of words, doubling consonants when adding an ending, Latin roots,
