This resource consists of 13 short language / grammar tests.
Each test is based on a different piece of writing for close reading and critical evaluation. The text might contain errors of expression or grammar for correction. Elements of style are highlighted in this interesting and varied array of passages including newspaper articles, blogs, non fiction and fiction.
Questions invite students to apply, or show understanding of, basic grammar rules and sentence structure conventions. An appreciation of standard and non-standard English usage is also encouraged. An understanding of register, style and rhetorical devices is examined as well.
This resource could be used as a part of a test, as homework exercises or quick classwork quizzes.
