Product Description
This lesson plan, worksheet, and PowerPoint includes everything you need to give meaningful feedback to student writers that they will actually apply and use to grow their writing skills. Here's how it works:

1. Before handing back papers, highlight student errors color-coding grammatical errors in yellow and revisions in green.
2. After handing back papers, ask students to individually unpack their mistakes, working to decide what mistakes they made and how to fix them.
3. Students then work in pairs to share their "favorite mistakes" and any errors that stumped them.
4. As a whole class, share and discuss favorite mistakes. Discuss any errors that are still stumping students. Learn together!
5. Return students to work on their writing individually, recording 1-3 of their errors on the provided "Grammar Guru" worksheet. Students record their mistake, the rule to fix it, and the revision. Students use the form all year to record errors and learn from past mistakes.

This lesson will help you to build a positive, supportive writing community in your classroom where mistakes are celebrated as opportunities to learn!
