Completely ready to use! | Don’t you hate when you hand back an essay that you annotated to help students improve and then find it in the garbage? Well look no further. Here is an activity (classwork or homework) that forces students to actually go back into your comments and work with them. This IS NOT A REWRITE. Who has time to read double that amount of essays? This is a way for students to repair, in isolation, mistakes they made on their essay. I had a literature professor that would make us do this with our essays.
This activity forces students to (up to 20 times, but this can be changed) find and cite a mistake, say why it was a mistake (based on my comments), tell me why they thought it was okay to do, and then fix their mistake.
I am a very harsh essay grader. So besides this activity being just a grade, it also averages the student’s current essay grade with a 100% (you could of course change this in the directions).
This doc is formatted for typing into and submitting through turnitin.com, but you can change that.
