This editing checklist file includes both full sheet and half-sheet checklists that can be used with any writing assignment! The items on the list also include examples to help students make their own corrections to writing errors.
Giving students a checklist can promote independence in editing their own or peers' writing, reducing the amount of time that you need to spend on one-on-one editing conferences.
I use these in my special education classroom to help my students gain independence and understand the importance of the writing process, but they would be great for any student!
I printed one copy for each student at the start of the school year and laminated them. Students keep them in their writing folder and use dry erase markers to check off boxes as they edit, then erase and reuse them all year!
