Proofreading has never been more FUN! Students help Detective Super Proofer find mistakes in high-interest, U.S. history-based passages. Students not only sharpen their proofreading skills but learn facts covering famous events and people in U.S. history.

• The Boston Tea Party
• The American Revolution
• Paul Revere
• Thomas Paine
• Valley Forge
• The Louisiana Purchase
• Daniel Boone
• Susan B. Anthony
• Amelia Earhart
• Rosa Parks
• Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Student detectives look for the following types of errors in the U.S. history-based passages:

subject-verb agreement

• punctuation

• verb tenses

• capitalization

• spelling


This unit also includes:

• a Note to Student Detectives (complete step-by-step instructions)

• a Sample Lesson (to do together as a class before assigning individual or group work)

• an Answer Key for each passage

• a Cases Completed Sheet (to keep track of the cases solved)
