Choosing to use online collaboration editing and revision with 8th graders requires a bit of guidance. This document gives students tasks to complete as they look at revising and editing a paper shared with them by a peer. The lesson takes 2 days for me, but could take less time if students are already familiar with sharing documents in Google.
Day 1 - Model how to share and comment. Assign student partners. Begin work.
Day 2 - Complete editing and revision. Work on editing and revising own paper if time remains.
This document is based on the 8th grade CCSS and therefore includes counterclaim and rebuttal.
