Our delightful activities demystify complicated grammar jargon, build the skills your students need to become better writers and speakers, and are actually . . . fun! (We promise!)

How Scope helps you build your
students’ grammar, writing, and
revision skills:

1. The Lazy Editor: editing and revision

Subject-verb disagreement. Pronoun mistakes. Punctuation errors. No transition words. Rambling paragraphs. These are the kinds of grammar and writing errors your students will encounter in our delightful Lazy Editor activity, a short and fascinating nonfiction text that appears in each issue. Your students can work as a class, in groups, with a partner, or individually to find and correct each mistake. For each type of error, we provide a follow-up activity sheet online for students who need extra practice.
Less-challenging and more-challenging versions of each Lazy Editor are available as printable PDFs on our website. The less-challenging version covers just one grammar or writing concept per article, while the more-challenging version includes higher-level skills.

2. Commonly Confused Words

This delightful grammar activity is a great way to help your students practice using words they often confuse—imply and infer; accept and except; number and amount. This activity appears at the beginning of every issue and can be done in groups or as a class in as little as five minutes. Great for time-strapped teachers!
