Let your students know that spell check and grammar check won't catch every mistake (they are particularly bad about catching homonyms). Even writers that use computers can benefit from a real person looking over their work. The following collection of worksheets will introduce your students to proofreading and editing. Activities include correcting all mistakes within a given paragraph, using three common ways of correcting run-on sentences, learning to proofread and how to use editing marks correctly, and more.
Please Note: While answer sheets have been provided for each worksheet for instructors, in some cases, student answers may vary slightly.
