In Crazy English, teacher and humorist Richard Lederer paints a hilarious portrait of some of our language's odder edges. Share the joy with your students as you give them practice using a dictionary. Use the links below to review assignments and a test I devised for use with a middle school class. Use them as is, or adapt them for use in your classroom. For a taste of Lederer's book, read the segments he has posted on his website.
Test - Key
In case you missed it, I put up another assignment based on a Lederer idea in Ain't That Write?.
