Many teachers have adopted the daily proofreading exercises published by large companies as a way to help students practice finding and correcting errors. Sadly, many students have fallen asleep over these same exercises. Ordinary daily proofreading exercises try to do too much--i.e., force-feed facts and information as they also try to teach writing. "A Sentence a Day" takes a different approach. It focuses on short, playful, interesting sentences with a sense of humor. Students receive proofreading practice in daily doses that don't overwhelm. Each exercise should take only a few minutes of class time, allowing for frequent, consistent reinforcement and practice of serious writing skills. Each page of the book shows the incorrect sentence, a sample correction, and notes for the teacher. You may write the incorrect sentence on the board, or make a transparency of the page and show it on an overhead, covering up the answers.
