Grammar and Punctuation Practice
Editor in Chief improves your child's grammar, punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and attention to detail using a standards-based thinking approach rather than drill and practice. This effective method teaches students to carefully analyze and edit stories that contain errors in writing mechanics and story details.

The stories involve mixed-skills practice, starting with easier errors and becoming more challenging as students become adept at the editing process.

Students identify and circle errors in each story. They then insert, modify, or delete punctuation, words, and short phrases to make corrections. An editing checklist and annotated guide to grammar, usage, and punctuation are provided to help focus students' thinking and allow them to match their answers to applicable rules.

Detailed answers are also included.

Makes you think January 14, 2013
Reviewer: Janice  
I have used Editor in Chief 2 both with a girl who excelled in writing, and girls who struggled with language skills. They all learned things from it. One daughter even got the added bonus of a life lesson about paying close attention to detail, something that sometimes gets overlooked in our day to day teaching.

Reviewer: alotofgewgaws  
I have 4 different kids doing Editor-In-Chief at their own levels. Great for practice and review. It doesn't take long. Stories are engaging. Just 1 a week. Answers and instructional guide in the back.

Interesting lessons October 10, 2011
Reviewer: Amy Griffith from Denton, TX United States  
Editor in Chief is a good way to review basic rules of grammar, punctuation, and syntax. The lessons are a little predictable, and it's a bit expensive for 33 lessons, but it's an interesting way to make sure your child understands the basics of editing. It should not be used until your child has studied grammar because it really isn't designed to teach, but it will reveal any gaps.

Short, fun lessons to improve basic English skills May 9, 2011
Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
This has been a short, easy, fun addition to our English lessons when we've needed to focus on the basics of grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.   The whole series has been excellent - check the pages at the beginning to see exact details on what "scope and sequence" is covered in each book if you are looking for that kind of detail.  Each book covers a myriad of writing styles and topics to appeal to a wide interest in readers.  I like that these books clearly state how many errors should be found in each passage and include a (pull-out) error review checklist at the beginning of the book to remind the students of common errors to be looking for.  A fun way to practice "boring" basic English skills!
