The Weekly Text, June 9, 2017

If you deal with student writing, I’ll hazard a guess that you’ve seen in it more than once confusion between the transitive (mostly) and intransitive (so used in some instances) verb accept and the multi-purpose–it serves as both a transitive and intransitive verb, as well as a preposition and a conjunction–word except.

So, for this week’s Text, I offer these five homophone worksheets on accept and except. The first three of them are ten cloze blanks each, then the final two each contain five cloze blanks. If one wanted to make more of these, it wouldn’t be hard, via the miracle of copy and paste, to turn the first three worksheets into six.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
