PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

CHOPS is an editing technique that I use with my students. It is helpful for self-editing as well as peer-editing. It breaks down the editing process into 5 steps and helps students to focus on common errors.


C – Capital letters. Do you have capital letters at the beginning of every sentence and for proper nouns?

H – Handwriting. Can your friend or your teacher read all of the words?

O – Omitted Words. Did you remember the little words like is, it, the, and and ?

P – Punctuation. Do you have periods, question marks, or exclamation marks at the end of every sentence? Did you put in commas when needed?

S – Spelling. Did you spell the words correctly? Check the little words like were, has, their, there, they’re, off, of, when, where, your, you’re, went, want.

I have this posted in my classroom and refer to it many times a day. This is an acronym that I learned at a conference or from a colleague. I can’t take credit for it. I would be glad to cite the creator of this acronym if anyone knows who that is.
