On with my editing idea. We have been writing every day in preparation for our state writing test coming up in a couple weeks. For homework, I give them a prompt and they have to do a graphic organizer on Monday, rough draft on Tuesday, revise and edit on Wednesday and final copy on Thursday. This week, prior to revising and editing, we exchanged our rough drafts in class. I gave each student a sticky note because I didn't want them writing on the actual paper. Together we went through each item on my checklist and I asked them to look at their peer's paper to see if it met that expectation. They were to not only write ideas for revisions but they had to find positive things to say about the writing as well. As I circulated, I noticed more peer teaching than ever before. It was a great lesson!
I like how this student made the sticky note stand up while revising!
Revising is best in color!
