This Editor's Checklist is used in my classroom to help students edit their writing. Students take one checklist (approximately a 3X3 square) and staple to their first draft. Students go through and edit for capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and whether or not each sentence makes sense. Once they finish each step of the editing process, they check off the corresponding box. This way I know they looked at their work critically before handing it to me to look over.
I teach Resource/Learning Center (special education) and these students struggle with writing. This Editor's Checklist is labeled 4th grade - 7th grade, but it could truly be used for younger grades as well once students start revising their work (2nd grade, 3rd grade.) I typically print out one and make copies onto colored paper so that the Editor's Checklist stands out on the students' first draft.
