This is a short, simple checklist that encourages students to check their own work before handing it in for marking. It can be used for a range of subject areas as it is not content specific.
It reminds them to include details such as their name, heading and date, as well as checking punctuation, spelling and handwriting.
I display it as a poster in my classroom which the students have become accustomed to using as a self or peer checklist before returning work to me for marking, thus becoming more autonomous learners.
You could also print multiple copies to a page and create individualised bookmarks for the students' personal use.
