These PowerPoint created slides for Middle School and High School students showcase four troublesome word lists. Each list includes a practice exercise and then a 30 point quiz. Whether Distance Learning or Classroom Learning, they are terrific for mini-lessons to clarify students' confusion when using these Troublesome Words.
The sixteen slides in this show review the usage of words such as affect/effect, lie/lay, further/farther, few/less, nauseated, nauseous, 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 SAT-Word-Lists-and-Quizzes-Distance-Learning-2640. Their antics always hook students.
If you prefer not to use this product as slides, print it off (using the Full-Page option) so students have a hard copy to use for this word study.
