I LOVE using this correction guide and worksheet with students of all ages and ability levels. Check out my video preview to hear me explain how I incorporate it into classrooms of all levels and age-groups.
My correction guide offers a simple key for correcting written work using straight-forward symbols and abbreviations. I offer students an idea of the type of error they have made, without doing the work for them. The goal is for students to use their textbook or an internet resource to look-up the error and LEARN from their mistake, rather than simply copying down the correction.
The worksheet that accompanies the correction guide asks students to pick 5 errors/mistakes to correct in detail. Students re-write each sentence and then EXPLAIN why their first attempt was erroneous.
