99 Slide PowerPoint and 16 page Word Document featuring Every Day Edits. I used it for warm-ups, but you could assign it as an on going project or exit slip strategy. Great for 6-8th grade.
Directions for the Everyday Edit Warm-up Packet: at the beginning of every class you will read the selection closely and make proofreader’s marks for the 10 edits preferably in red ink.
Every paragraph will have 10 mistakes. Each daily exercise will improve your own writing by helping you master the conventions of the English language.
In all writing assessments and future PAARC National testing, you must edit as you write online. These exercises will help you strengthen your own abilities in Spelling, Capitalization, Grammar and Punctuation.
CCSS – Grade 6-8 Language 6.2, 7.2 or 8.2 Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.
