Aloha! And welcome to the islands!
Looking for a way to add life, value, and GENUINE LOVE OF LEARNING to your peer review activity?
I got you, bruddah.
Far too often, peer editing and review days quickly devolve into an echo chamber of off-task conversation (at best), or time-wasting frustration of students struggling to identify all manner of mistakes. Not to mention the stress and student anxiety at the prospect of having their writing torn apart by underinformed or overzealous peers!
Take a break from this far-too-ordinary source of student and teacher frustration with a trip to the Instructional Islands -- a step-by-step guided peer review activity completely adaptable for all reading / English / language arts classes from middle school through grade 12. I've used it with tremendous results in classrooms ranging from inner city schools with students reading at a fourth grade level to high school classes working with honors and AP students.
This digital download contains:
+ 3 page walk-through of pedagogy and setup for a self-contained peer editing activity that will help students and teachers alike enjoy some much-needed "rest and relaxation" while still putting in meaningful work with minimal time wasted for the full duration of your class period. Think of this like your teacher guide book!
+ A sample 2 page "island passport" you can edit to the unique needs of your students, grade level, and curriculum demands.
+ A fully-editable Google Slides presentation with 10 slides, embedded timers, and clear visuals for whole-class instructions.
Here's to you and to a well-earned teacher peace of mind, along with a genuine wish that you and your students really enjoy this high energy peer editing and review activity. Thanks again for checking out my store, and enjoy your trip to the "Instructional Islands!"
