Product Description
Picture this:

Your students are writing persuasive essays, they go through the entire drafting process, and they spend days editing and revising their essays. Next, they turn their completed essays into you for grading. You sit down with a hot, steamy cup of coffee preparing yourself to read what is sure to be persuasive essay masterpieces, only to find that despite the best efforts of you and your students, their essays still contain convention errors.

So what do you do next?

A. Ignore the convention errors completely and just mark them down on the rubric.
B. Mark their paper up with a red pen, making sure to catch every error, give them a bad grade, and then angrily hand the essays back.
C. Correct the convention errors students made, and then after you pass back their essay, complete this FREE activity with them to lift them as writers.

Correct Answer: C

When you pass any writing back to students, this is the perfect 10 minute activity where students can select two of the sentences where a convention error occurred in their writing and think about why what they wrote was incorrect. It's also the perfect opportunity for you to do quick, explicit re-teaching of grammar concepts. When students think about a grammar error in relation to their own writing, they are more likely to internalize that error and apply the knowledge correctly to future writing.
