Clearing Confusion

posted: 12.18.06 by Barclay Barrios

Handbooks often provide a list of commonly confused words and phrases (accept/except, lose/loose). As homework, assign each student a word pair and ask her or him to write a sentence that will make the meaning of the two words clear. For example, “If I don’t wear my pants loose, I lose my mind.” Collect these sentences in a single handout to distribute to the class.
