Nothing calls attention to a lack of education than misusing commonly misused words in writing. While standards might focus on homophones, this download also presents other commonly misused words. I always told my students that if they could master the appropriate use of these words, they would appear intelligent, and that's sometimes half the battle.
I also taught cultural literacy so that students would have a background knowledge in literature and philosophy that we tend to ignore in schools today. Watch for those quizzes on the Educabana sales page, too, as I had an even more extensive list of important facts than the list of misused words.
I used several sources to compile these seven quizzes with a total of about 120 total questions. The main list is in alphabetical order through four quizzes, and then the other three sometimes overlap or are from earlier sources.
Quizstar import codes are included for all of the quizzes. These are probably good for ACT and SAT test prep, too. These are great to throw at the kids before teaching the words to see where they are at and how much work they need using their own language.
