Grammar Review: Stories About Careers

Effective, enjoyable, and easy to use, these grammar stories about careers are especially helpful for high school students because many of them have no idea what occupation might suit their own individual interests and talents. Instead of using unrelated sentences, this set of 6 Grammar Stories combines grammar skill practice with information about hundreds of possible jobs that might match their aptitudes.

Two teacher Error Analysis Worksheets for individual or class appraisal make this set an invaluable resource in designing lessons for a new class or for the beginning of a new school year.

The stories are great for homework, seat work, extra credit, and for grammar review for state Writing Tests. The set focuses on the most common errors in spelling, subject--verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, homophones, and irregular verbs, and irregular plurals.  Each story contains about 40 sentences with one grammatical error in each sentence. Students enjoy the challenge of finding the errors, individually or in teams.

The set includes an Answer Key, PLUS an explanation for each correction. A short Writing Prompt is added, as well as a Corrected Version in Paragraph Form.
