The Easy English Series – Book 8: Easy Editing and Proofreading by Margaret Warner
– Editing and Proofreading for Students who have little or no Experience of English
The Easy English Series consists of eight books, all of which have been carefully constructed to increase the proficiency of ESL (English as a Second Language) and ESD (English as a Second Dialect) students’ use of standard English. The series immerses students in a language programme which is accessible and relevant to the lives and experiences of young people, regardless of their cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The series is very well laid out with an appealing font, graphics that will appeal to all ages and text is well spaced and uncluttered. The activities in each book are suitable for ESL/ESD students or any student who is struggling with the English language.
Easy English Book 8: Easy Editing and Proofreading is the seventh book in the series and aims to improve educational outcomes for indigenous and ESL students. It continues to develop the idea, initially introduced in Easy Text Types, that there are different types of texts. The students are encouraged to read and become familiar with the features of explanation, descriptions, expositions, discussions and poems. All of the sample text types in this book are beautifully illustrated and simply presented to inspire students to begin to plan, write and edit their own text types with enthusiasm and confidence. The activities in the book are outcome linked and some are created to help students revise the grammar and punctuation that they have learned in Easy Punctuation and Easy Grammar. The solutions for these activities are provided at the back of the book.
