The conventions of writing, including grammar and mechanics, ensure that what is written accurately conveys what the writer intended to express. In Editing & Proofreading, student writers discover how grammar and punctuation can either clarify or cloud a piece of writing, whether it is a science report, a descriptive piece or even an email message. Writers detect and correct run-on sentences, fragments and comma splices, check subject-verb and noun-pronoun agreement, and identify misplaced modifiers. Students also discover how the tiniest of punctuation marks, such as commas and apostrophes, play a big role in molding the meaning of writing. A teacher's guide is included. Closed-captioned.
