The Student Workbook for The Art of Editing in the Age of Convergence helps students learn the fundamentals of copyediting by giving them an abundance of carefully constructed exercises on which to work. Designed as a complement to the 9th Edition of The Art of Editing, the workbook is divided into sections that correspond to the major units of instruction in the main text. It can also serve as a supplement to other editing texts that take a different approach. Most sections includes quizzes, essay questions, problems, and exercises for students to tackle. Collectively, the exercises cover nearly every point of editing that can be included in a copyediting class.
