Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This unique series uses illustrated high-interest stories to get your students thinking like real editors! Each book will improve students' language mechanics significantly and--equally important--improve academic performance! Easy to teach and a lot more fun than traditional grammar drills.

I first purchased this book several years ago. Since then, I have tried to use other "daily oral language practice" editing activities, but came back to this one. My students seem to really enjoy the "detective work" of finding errors in these interesting-to-read paragraphs. Each one is a simulation of a short newspaper article, and is accompanied by a picture with a caption; the students have to compare these with the text to see if there are any discrepancies. While students are looking for common mistakes in writing they tend to make, they are learning fun facts about animals, geology, and even history.

I've never come across anything quite like them as a way to prepare for the grammar section of standardized tests and to teach careful proofreading and editing.

We've used Editor in Chief for our two oldest children (now in university). Now our 13-year-old is using it. Teaches a lot of the basics in a fun way!

The entire Editor in Chief series is excellent. Often, even students who don't like studying grammar enjoy the EIC editing challenges. They are short and the number of errors in a passage is noted in advance, so that students know when to stop or to keep searching. I would recommend this series for either homeschooled or in-school students to complement any other curriculum. It is indeed one of the Critical Thinking Company's best publications.

I love Critical Thinking Co.'s books in general. I used the younger Editor in Chief level with no problems. However, this book is a mess. The seller sent me a 2003 edition, and I have no idea if there is a more current one. This edition is awful. My child just finished exercise 14, and at least 4 out of the last 14 lessons had errors either in the answer key, or in the the exercise (but not considered errors by the answer key.) The website does have a section for errata, but some of the mistakes I found were not even listed there! I am not sure if I even want to continue using this book, but it is expensive for a mere 33 exercises and I'd hate to waste the money. It's hard enough to teach proper grammar with all the awful grammar commonly used in media, and this book will not clearly help.
