PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

English is complex and irregular, yet there are a limited number of high frequency errors. This product teaches writers correct usages for these. Page 5 of the Preview file summarizes the concepts covered on the 36 cards.

Task cards in this product are provided in both double-sided and single-sided formats. The contents are identical. The double-sided cards are printed two to a page (each 8.5 x 5.5 inches) and will require 24 sheets of cover stock and lamination for the cards and answer keys. This is the cost-effective option for producing reusable task cards. Single-sided pages require 46 sheets. These can be used as black-line masters for worksheets.

Every card has a code. Most double-sided troublesome words cards have one lesson on the front and another on the back. The number is the same on both sides, although it is followed on one side with an A (TW–#A) and on the other with a B (TW–#B). Troublesome usages cards have one lesson with exercises continued on the back.

Cards start with a mini-lesson that explains in simple terms a problematic usage. Students then apply the concepts by selecting correct words for sentences. The 18 troublesome words cards look at commonly confused words (i.e., its/it's, good/well, fewer/less, lie/lay, who/whom). The 18 usage cards deal principally with pronoun and verb issues. These cards ensure that students are exposed to lessons on grammar and writing pitfalls.

Contents: 18 troublesome words cards containing 2 mini-lessons followed by 8 sentences each; 18 troublesome usages cards with a mini-lesson explaining a problematic usage followed by 15 sentences; answer keys; student record-keeping checklists; 10 pages of teacher information including a resource list
