PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These editing and proofreading activities go beyond a simple checklist. These require students to engage with a peer and apply constructive feedback. These activities follow the six traits of writing.

UPDATE: New files were updated April 2017 for this purchase. Please re-download to see the added editing and revising activity.

Included are teacher guidelines and applicable common core standards for both activities.

Activity One, Peer Editing: Students have six worksheets that cover the six traits of writing: voice, sentence fluency, ideas, word choice, organization, and conventions. The writer and the editor pass the paper and the worksheet back and forth so that both are working to build a better paper as they follow questions and guidelines.

This has worked well in my classroom because it is an interactive and collaborative activity.

Activity Two, Stations: Students will divide into groups and move around the room at different stations. Each station has a checklist for students to check their own work (but students may help each other as they are in groups). Students will focus on editing and revising certain areas at each station.

The writing station activity includes labeled tents to help organize. This works well because students get to move around the room while fixing different angles of their papers.

Use the peer edit or station activity at different stages with writing one paper or with different papers. I use these activities with high school students.
