Effective, enjoyable, and easy-to-use, these grammar stories about careers are so much better than another boring grammar worksheet.

Grammar practice can be helpful, informative, and fun.

Many teens have no idea what careers might suit their individual interests and talents.

Instead of using sets of unrelated sentences, students can review spelling and grammar skills while learning about numerous job possibilities.

Two Teacher’s Worksheets for error analysis are included to help focus instruction and group students according to individual needs.

This is a great collection of grammar exercises for all students in grades 6-12, and even for community college classes.

The set is also a helpful review for state writing tests or final exams.

It includes a Venn diagram to help students contemplate "The Perfect Job."

This collection focuses academically on the most common errors in spelling, subject—verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, irregular verbs and plurals, and homophones.

The stories can be used as homework, seatwork, extra credit, or in learning stations.

Simple to use and to grade, if desired, the stories have sentences with only one grammatical error in each sentence. Students enjoy the challenge of finding the errors, individually or in groups.

Each story fits on one, two-sided piece of paper. Every story includes an Answer Key, PLUS an explanation for each correction. A short writing prompt is included, as well as a corrected version in paragraph form.


1. Careers in the Media

2. Careers in Health Services

3. Careers in the Military

4. Careers in Government

5. Careers in the Arts

6. Careers in the Trades

The Preview provides more specific information about the format.

For EXTRA fun in class:

Pair two students together, and give teams points for each correct answer. Total points over several days or weeks on a wall chart, and award small prizes or grade points when a certain level is reached. Students love the competition, and the pairs like helping each other find the errors.
