Spoofing and proofing the classics : literature-based activities to develop critical reading skills and grammatical knowledge by Keith Polette( )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using "shaggy dog" stories based on classic literature, the Polettes address common spelling and grammatical errors and the ways in which children can be taught to read critically to recognize them. Stories such as Rapunzel, Alice, The Hare and the Tortoise, and King Arthur, purposely embedded with common errors, have been pretested in teacher workshops given by Nancy Polette and in Dr. Keith Polette's classes at the University of Texas, El Paso. Teachers found them specific enough to be used directly in the writing instructional curriculum and fun for students to read and try to figure out."

A one-paragraph booktalk introduces the story and is followed by 10 questions based upon the characters or situations.

The book will be useful for quick, spur-of-the-monent planning as well as for quality lesson plans in working with ESL groups."--SLJ
