Product Description
This PowerPoint for Middle School and High School students includes four troublesome word lists. Each list includes a practice exercise and then a 30 point quiz.

The sixteen slides in this show review the usage of words such as affect/effect, lie/lay, further/farther and many more. I include an answer key for the practices and the quizzes.

Following each word list is a practice session. These exercises as well as the quizzes use the characters: Mrs. Hardcase, an English teacher, Dave Demittis (Demented Dave) the principal, and students: Bubba, Zelda and Bertha in a variety of escapades. They are the same characters that I created and use in my SAT Word Lists (also posted in my Store). Their antics always hook students.

If you prefer not to use this product as a PowerPoint, print it off (using the Full-Page option) so students have a hard copy to use for this word study..

You will appreciate these sanity-saving lessons when reading essays where students now use these Troublesome Words correctly.
