Summary

Better Writing Through Editing teaches intermediate students how to edit their own writing for correct sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, and expression. Using a systematic approach for studying writing and editing problems, students discover their individual strengths and weaknesses and are encouraged to monitor their own progress. Part 1, Getting Started, begins with a diagnostic self-assessment to determine each students' awareness of typical ESL/EFL editing problems. Students also learn an editing system that they can use to evaluate their own writing. Part 2, Writing Focus, provides practice with a variety of English sentence types and features writing assignments based on a chapter theme and a rhetorical focus. Part 3, Editing Focus, provides clear and simple explanations of typical ESL/EFL editing problems and contains hundreds of practice exercises. The chapters in the Editing Focus section can be done in any order, thus allowing a teacher to customize learning while simultaneously completing the Writing Focus chapters.

Features :

  • Simple and concise grammar presentations focus on errors that are common for intermediate ESL/EFL students.
  • Hundreds of contextualized activities give students practice in ares such as run-ons, fragments, subject-verb agreement, singular/plural, noun/pronoun agreement, word choice/form, word order, prepositions, punctuation, and more.
  • Complete answer keys for each chapter allow students to check their own work.
  • Engaging, thematic writing assignments give students practice writing in various rhetorical forms.
  • Error, Progress, and Sentence Types charts allow students to track their own progress.
  • Beginning and Final Editing Assessments target individual strengths and weaknesses and track student improvement.
  • The Teacher's Edition contains adaptable charts, chapter quizzes, sample lesson plans, and teaching suggestions.
