Going Into Detail: Developing Proofreading Skills

I got his from the excellent NY times lesson bank by By SHANNON DOYNE AND HOLLY EPSTEIN OJALVO

Overview | How can we learn to pay closer attention to detail in writing? How can we put knowledge about grammar and mechanics into practice? In this lesson, students consider errors in signage and other textual displays and create lists of common errors to check as they proofread. They then practice proofreading and develop strategies, taking into consideration the possible consequences of making language mistakes.
