NY Times Copy Edit This! Quiz

NY Times Copy Edit This! Quiz

Here is a cool tool that I have just learnt from Larry Ferlazzo’s blog. The Times’ editor has created quizzes that you can take to correct grammatical errors on New York Times’ articles.

When you go to the quiz page, you will see the paragraphs. Each paragraph contains at least one clear error in grammar or word usage. When you take the quiz, just click on the word that you think it’s wrong and if there is an error, the quiz will explain you why.

[Digital Note-Taking]

Here is the link if you would like to share it with your students. It will be a good challenge for students who are in advanced level. They may work on the tool individually or in groups and see who will be the winner in class.
