I used to make corrections to my students' papers when I graded them with the idea that they would look at the corrections and apply this feedback for their next paper. As my fellow teachers of writing have already figured out, this never seemed to work! So I decided to put the responsibility of correcting writing back on my students' shoulders.
When I grade writing, I simply highlight sentences that need revision. Then the students use this worksheet to not only correct the sentence, but also to identify what kind of error(s) the sentence contained. This way I know the students understand the mistakes that they made and have practiced fixing them. I found my students' writing improved much more after I implemented this system.
