Challenge students to enhance their peer edits with this fun and rigorous peer editing activity. Students receive a Bingo card and attempt to create Bingos by finding a variety of errors and edits within a peer's paper. Great for either in-class activities or homework!
Your download includes the following:
★ four different BINGO cards, each containing the same 24 errors/edits but in different orders
★ optional student recording sheet for students to record the errors/edits they find
★ student handout error example sheet that includes the definition and example of each error
★ teacher instructions
★ student rules sheet to project during facilitation of activity
★ sample BINGO card, student recording sheet and two pages of essay as an example for the teacher
Type of errors and edits (24 different edits/errors) include
✩ parallel structure
✩ redundancies and vagueness
✩ word choice
✩ fragments, run-ons, and comma splices
⭐ Students should be familiar with grammar and editing rules. The error and editing example sheet isn't meant to take the place of teaching the rules, only reminding students what errors look like.
⭐ Please note this is played differently than regular Bingo. The teacher doesn't call out different errors; instead, students work on their own to find the errors and edits. Depending on the quality of students' rough drafts, multiple Bingos or coverall may not be possible.
Depending on the editing level and writing levels of your students, the Bingo game (including giving teacher instructions) can take anywhere from 45-75 minutes.
