Description

Editing and Proofreading Worksheets: 12 Printable Editing Prompts (Grades 3-7).

Send shivers down the spine of red pen makers every where as you teach students how to edit correctly. Good editing is a trainable habit requiring practice, repetition, and teacher feedback. Use these editing prompts once a month to help the journey forward.

This download is part of the larger Editing & Proofreading Bundle - 91 Worksheets (includes more structured editing, most with answer keys).

Grading:

The worksheets are designed for holistic grading. Student editing is dynamic and involves judgment. Sometimes there is more than one way to rewrite a sentence, and an answer key is too rigid for these assignments. Think: was the editing Excellent, Good, Fair, or Poor and assign a corresponding letter grade or percent.
