Features of Editor in Chief® Workbooks

  • If your child needs “proofreading” practice in context, this book accomplishes the task.
  • English lessons are followed by the proofreading exercises.
  • Proofreading Exercises-Your student will find the grammar, usage, and punctuation errors in a reading with a captioned picture—like a real editor.
  • The Answer Section shows the corrected version and the reason for each correction.
  • Each of the workbooks in this series is reproducible for single-classroom use.
  • Note: Level 3 is formatted differently from the other levels. See the description for more details.

We used Editor in Chief C-2 [now part of Editor in Chief 3] for an intensive grammar and punctuation review for our sons. Every day for an hour or two we went through several lessons together. The boys took turns proofreading the paragraph and finding the grammar and punctuation errors. When they seemed stumped, I read and explained the rule from the third section of the book. As the boys found the errors, I asked them to give an explanation. This exercise reinforced everything they learned and reviewed.

One son unconsciously corrected the errors as he read. When you proofread, you have to overcome that tendency of your brain to “fix” what you are reading. You’re never too old to learn. I finally connected the dots when we did Editor in Chief to understand a comma splice.
