Product Description
It’s happening again. You’re sitting down to read student writing and are suffering through silly error after silly error until steam is coming out of your ears. You know students have not proofread despite the many times you’ve asked/told/begged.

THE REVISON TECHNIQUES OF READING ALOUD AND BACKWARDS TO THE RESCUE!

Instead of saying “proofread” to students, try “read aloud and backwards.”
If you tell students to “proofread,” that means something different to each student.
However, if you tell students to read their papers aloud and fix errors as they go, and then tell students to read backwards sentence by sentence and fix errors as they go, now you’re talking in specifics.

It’s much easier for a student to claim he has “proofread” than it is to claim he’s read aloud and backwards when clearly he has not.
Teach these techniques to your 4 – 8th graders in a fun, quick way and save your sanity.

I show this on the Smart Board first, allowing student to play parts. Then I assign filling in the slides for homework or independent class time. You could, however, just assign this and not do a whole class lesson. If you do that, be sure to delete the “Starring in Today’s Presentation” slide.

*This product is best shared in Google Slides. It is, however, set up to be printed if needed/preferred. PDf included.
