In addition to activities relating to components of English grammar, the book includes lessons relating to structures within words (i.e., prefixes and suffixes).
- Exercises for Sentence Practice. The activities in Part 2 of this book reinforce stills emphasized in Part 1 and provide practice in constructing a variety of sentence types. Students are asked to identify errors in sentences and to rewrite these sentences.
