Teach your middle school students standard English grammar and usage through the basics of editing and more with Daily Paragraph Editing!

This eighth grade teacher’s resource includes 36 weeks of targeted lessons that will immediately become your favorite supplement to your language arts curriculum. The 176 focused language arts activities provide the practice students need to produce error-free writing assignments and include easy-to-use teacher support to deliver the lessons.

Lessons include 36 weeks of daily practice that cover these skills and concepts:

  • Capitalization: Quotations, salutations, titles of books, magazines, movies, and songs, incorrect use of capitals and more
  • Language Usage: Singular and plural forms, verb tenses, correct use of pronouns and adjectival and adverbial forms
  • Punctuation: Appostrophes, commas, periods, colons, semi-colons and more.
  • Spelling: identifying errors in spelling and in multiple-meaning words

Additional resources include:

  • scope and sequence chart
  • annotated answer key
  • assessment rubric
  • reproducible language handbook
  • page of reproducible proofreading marks
  • editing checklist for students

How it Works:

Students apply grade 8 language skills to correct a paragraph on Monday through Thursday; when read together, the four paragraphs form a cohesive composition. A writing prompt on Friday relates to the week’s four-paragraph composition and provides an opportunity for students to apply the targeted language conventions they practiced.The weekly passages cover a broad range of expository and narrative writing forms, including:

  • nonfiction texts on grade-level social studies and science topics
  • biographies, book reviews, instructions, interviews, journal entries, and letters
  • fables, fantasy and science fiction, historical fiction, personal narratives,
    and realistic fiction
