Product Description
With this resource, students learn how to correct commonly misused words and phrases.

Students sometimes hear others use words or phrases that are unfamiliar to them but are appropriate for the situation, and later they use those same words or phrases in their work.

A problem often occurs, however, if they
• mishear the word or phrase
• do not remember word or phrase correctly
• use an inappropriate homophone for the correct word or phrase

For example, students may think they are using the correct phrase when they write
The bob wire stretched for miles.
However, they should have written
The barbed wire stretched for miles.

This 8-page printable guide includes
• a 1-page explanatory introduction to the problem
• a 3 worksheets that ask students to use context clues to fill in words and phrases that are commonly misused
• a reproducible graph that shows the correct phrase beside what students sometimes read or hear
• an answer key

This resource is suitable for middle school, high school, and college classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
