This ready-made partner tic-tac-toe activity is sure to increase student engagement and provide two sets of eyes on every essay in the room.
This can be used for any essay and is best used near the end of revising when students are focused on the final editing aspect of the writing process.
The handout gives instructions on how to play the traditional tic-tac-toe partner game while editing one student's essay at a time.
This can be used for any essay topic and students of any ability level.
The editing suggestions include capitalization, punctuation, spelling, slang, subject/verb agreement, sentence run-ons and fragments, and final essay formatting.
Tic-tac-toe revisions can be used during writer's workshop time or during whole-class instruction. Students can play repeatedly with multiple partners if needed.
