Product Description
Hello!
I'm Zac, a secondary English teacher from Australia. Let me tell you more about this free resource. I would also love to hear your feedback and rating!

Audience:
This two page resource is a simple guide to editing and proofing for students in Years 10 to 12, with a particular focus on senior students in English.

Content:
I developed this resource after years of repeating the same key feedback messages to senior secondary students. The first page explains the difference between the processes of editing and proofing. I find that students often mistake the two and benefit when they are more conscious of which stage of the writing process they are in. Also, on the first page, there are 15 general tips for editing, proofing and writing in general. On the second page. there is an extensive checklist of questions with check boxes for students. This checklist contains the following sections of checking questions: sense and logic, grammar and style, spelling and punctuation.

Teaching:
Before students submit a final piece of assessment I ask them to use this handout and checklist. I also ask them to show me that they have checked all the boxes and I have found that their written expression has improved greatly. After several uses, students will actually pair off and use the checklist against each other's work, providing some powerful peer feedback.

Further Resources:
The Online Writing Lab at Purdue University has excellent academic resources (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/561/01/)

I hope you find this helpful. If you have a question, please ask and I'll respond within 48 hours. Also, if you have time please check out my other resources, including the freebies.
